Where are you based?
I am based in Vienna, Austria.
Where's your favourite place to ride?
It might be a cliché, but I really like where I am at to ride. Around Vienna is just a great place to ride a bike, besides the big climbs we got all different type of terrain. So whatever you are in the mood for you can go for it. So you can switch up, small climbs with rolling hills or just pan flat if you want. Besides Vienna I would say the Lower Austria/Forrest Quarter (Waldviertel called in German) and Styria. And abroad it would be Mallorca in Winter.
What type of riding do you like to do the most?
Definitely fast rolling hills. I am quite big and heavy and doesn’t cope with the longer hills and big mountains too well. A good TT is always great fun.
How do you discover a new route? Do you plan ahead with maps or just see where the road takes you?
I really like to draw something out on Strava, save it on the Garmin and than just go and explore. Even if you detour a bit, it doesn’t matter on the bike. +/- 10-20km doesn’t matter anyway. Really like to explore.
What equipment do you use to capture your ride?
It really depends. iPhone of course is really convenient as you got it with you all the time. But I do carry cameras with me more and more often. At the moment the Canon G7x is a frequent traveller in my back pocket.
What destination would be on your riding wish list?
Would love to explore the area around Nice, France as well as the Pyrenees. Been there at the 2013 TdF Stage, but without my bike. So this would be rad.
