We are two friends and flat mates who met during their Geography studies at the University of Göttingen in Germany and share their passion for endurance sports, above all cycling. We will leave our lecture halls behind for some time to explore South and North America by bicycle.

Our friend Meret supports us in the preparation as well as during the trip from Germany. Without her, our project "Longest Ride" would not have reached this extent. She plans to join us on her bike following our journey for a few months.
The actual truth
We have never done anything that extreme before. We are also not 100% sure if our plans are going to work. We're not really good at fixing bike mechanicals and we're on a very small budget. But if we can do it, anyone can do it!
