Meet the riders: Ken Kölzer

Having missed none of the four previous editions I‘m still very much looking forward to the fifth one.

I may well know the challenges of Taunus Bikepacking, but changes to the route, meeting new riders and familiar faces, challenging weather and other surprises make it exciting every year.

My Salsa Cutthroat will be mostly unchanged for the third time. It‘s the perfect bicycle with drop- plus aerobars, mountainbike wheels and geometry, big gear range, many mounting points while being super comfortable. I‘m working on details though to make it even better.

Finishing and having fun will be my main priorities. No chasing records and sleepless nights for me. See you soon somewhere in the hills of the Taunus.
