First there was the swim… and the there was a bikerafting tour. Both are #ChasingCurrents – one the OLD plan, the other the NEW. Ah yes, there is nothing as inevitable as the onslaught of change an entropy. For posterity, and perhaps for someone else who would like to swim the same section, I will leave the information on the old adventure idea here, too. Enjoy!
After cycling to the Nordkapp, running across Germany there’s only one athletic discipline missing for me to fully understand what this “Triathlon-ing” life is all about: water. And what better place to get to know water in a long-distance adventure kind of way than a river?
I’m going to BIKERAFT 💥1090KM of the entire river Elbe💥 from source to sea this summer! Here are the basics:
🐌 Daily Distance: at least 42KM a day!
🐌 Total Duration: 3 weeks, starting from Berlin on the 15.07 and ending in Cuxhaven on the 07.08.2022.
🐌 Expedition style: as always self-supported, with a minimal carbon footprint! I’m carrying my own sleeping gear, and will resupply in grocery stores along the way.
🐌 EXTRA: I’m going to have some stalkers on this trip… #ChasingCurrents is being captured by a documentary film crew! Attentive readers of #FromLowestToHighest may even recognize one of the members….
