Herbert – Biking

Welcome to my biking page!Herbert on the road-bike 2006

Why and since when?

Since 2001 I ride quite a lot of bike, since 2002 Road-Bike (sometimes called race-bike). I started this in order to loose weight (which worked actually). In the meantime this is my main hobby, when looking at the effort/duration. In Spring/Summer/Autumn I ride between 10-15 hours, in the winter still 4-6 hours (at home on the ergometer or if weather allows with MTB/Crossbike in the forest).
