With 30 years and over 500,000 km of experience, he is known as the epitome of long-distance world touring. A recognised writer, photographer and raconteur, his tales are a great guide for the traveller.
Tilmann Waldthaler has ridden through 33 countries and on every continent. Currently he is on the road from Norway to New Zealand. In mid-2010 Tilmann set off from the far north of Norway, and in March 2012 he should complete the 25,000 km journey. His travel experiences are set out in his reports from the road on his website.
“Meine Touren bringen mich immer wieder zurück auf den Boden der Realität und so lerne ich unterwegs mit den einfachen Dingen des Lebens umzugehen und in der Schönheit der Natur meinen Lebenstraum zu realisieren".
Tilmann rides a Koga Signature Worldtraveller 26” (KS-TR 26) with Rohloff transmission. You can see his bike here.
