2012: Fichkona 2012
Fichkona is a Bike Marathon but no competition. It commenced on June, 30th 2012 at 10 a.m. on the top of the Fichtelberg mountain.
The finishing line was 601 km away to the north at the Kap Arkona on the Isle of Ruegen and had to be reached within 24 hours. I reached
it after 27 hours and 34 minutes. High temperatures, a heavy thunderstorm and detours made the project more difficult than expected to all
paticipants. Nevertheless many bikers reached the finish within the set time of 24 hours. I had damaged my front wheel and went 80kms
with a strong lateral runout until a retired participant lent me his wheel. For me as a non-biker the fun was most important during this event and I indeed had a lot of fun.
