About Us

Stefan Meinhold - who am I?

Having crossed the US by bicycle after school graduation in 1996 my decision was clear: One day I will cycle around the world- with my dream woman. For such a journey you have to have savings - so I moved to Frankfurt, worked hard and saved my money. Additionally I did some extreme tours on my mountain bike like crossing the highlands of Iceland or the Alps. Furthermore I was trained as a mountain bike guide and became trip-captain of the Deutsche Bank MTB division. In Frankfurt I met Julia, who shared my dream. Our friends gave us our first tandem as a marriage gift. Since then we spend every minute on our bicycle and we are very happy to have fulfilled our dream.

Julia Meinhold - who am I?

Rather used to travelling on all inclusive tours in Germany and Europe with my parents, my outdoor enthusiasm instantly started on my first journey with Stefan in the US Nationalparks - since then there has been no holding back. In the beginning we travelled by car or single bicycles, but very soon we found that we are the perfect team- not only as a couple but also as tandem cyclists, and that we love to spend our holidays exclusively on a tandem and campgrounds at the most wonderful places on earth. While Stefan relies especially on my toughness and endurance in cycling uphill, I count on his performance and power. After several shorter and longer journeys I have now dreamt the same dream as Stefan for a long time and I am very happy that it came true in 2007!
