Meet the riders: Jan Herrmann

Back from my biketouring trip from Germany to Kyrgyzstan last year, I’m always looking for new ways to experience adventure on two wheels. I used to do cross country races, but that was a while ago. Now I want to know again how far I can go to my limits.
I live in Berlin and since it is known to be very flat here, you don’t have a lot of meters of altitude at the end of a ride. So I  roam the vast landscapes of Brandenburg on long journeys and try to collect as many kilometers as possible.
I’m riding an 8Bar Mitte with 42mm wide tires and 1x drivetrain with a gear ratio of 42mm at the front and 11/42mm at the rear. In addition, a SON hub dynamo is spoked.
I am light and that’s how my set up should be. I sewed some of my bags myself.
I can’t wait to get started and I’m really looking forward to get to know all the other interesting riders, organisators and all people around the event.
