After completing the toughest and longest bike race in the world in record time I am now writing the book about the biggest challenge of my life. Future expeditions are already on my mind but still need some time to become more specific.

Illustration: About me

Thomas on his bike Bicycling bio
Blood, sweat, nerves, and money have finally paid off – two years of intense training and meticulous planning have had a purpose: The Fastest World Circumnavigation on a Bicycle. I have done it! I can proudly say that a great team has helped me in accomplishing this record. I also want to thank all my sponsors who trusted in me from the beginning. An amazing journey ended for me on New Year’s Eve with my arrival back to where I started, Berlin. I had bicycled 105 days, faster than any man around the globe, and broke the world record! This accomplishment made me the happiest, proudest, and most grateful person on earth. For somebody who had never really bicycled before 2008, I have accomplished more than I ever could have imagined. I biked most of the Pan-American Highway, peddled up some of the highest passes on Earth in Tibet, crossed the Andes more than once and now I have completed my most difficult challenge yet, a record breaking bicycle trip around the world.
Over the past few years I have cycled more than 65,000 km. Bicycling is still the most beautiful way to see the world in my opinion, and still my tool of choice to push myself closer to my limits, but lately I have been making few new plans. In the future I will still be cycling the world, but I also have other ideas on how to get around. There is something already on my mind …

    29.000 km in 105 Tagen, einer Stunde und 44 min. Nachdem ich nun eine Weile habe sacken lassen, ist es noch immer ein wenig schwer begreiflich, dass ich diese Menge an Kilometer auf dem Rad gefahren haben soll und gleichzeitig damit eine [...]

  • Endlich

    746 Tage ist heute her, dass ich am Basislager vom Mount Everest stand und den Entschluss fasste diesen Rekord, für den ich derzeit alles gebe und entbehre, zu brechen. Es war damals ein wolkenverhangener Tag, etwa wie heute. Mehr als [...]
