At the beginning of 2020, the coronavirus as an international pandemic forced our globalised world to a kind of standstill. We spent more than two months with curfews and contact restrictions. And of course, we were still in an extremely privileged position. For most of us it was never really about existential matters, but about the measure of our own prosperity and our own longing. It is also this longing that brought us here. For in mid-May, numerous measures were relaxed and travel is once again possible under important hygiene conditions.
So now we are sitting in Hamburg and have a week’s road trip through Germany ahead of us. We accompany the mountain bike pros Jasper Jauch and Monica Gasbichler on their way from north to south.
