So who is the guy with the fluffy beard? That is the man who motivated me to begin touring on a bicycle - Tilmann Waldthaler.

In 2005, a friend of mine, Uli Rohleder, handed me a book and said, “I think you might like to read this.” It was a book written by Tilmann about touring with a bicycle.Back then, I weighed about 40 pounds more than I do now; I had high blood pressure and diabetes. I decided to try out touring on a bicycle and have been doing it ever since. It improved my health considerably and gave me a new hobby that I thoroughly enjoy. 

Finally, in 2011, I met Tilmann at a presentation he was giving at a town next to the Kaiserstuhl near Freiburg in the Black Forest of Germany. He’s a really great guy with 450,000 kilometers experience in cycle touring.

Since this trip was a whirlwind trip to attend a presentation about Tilmann’s adventures, I will only show a few of the more interesting nature photographs I took on this short 480-kilometer trip.
