Riding to all four corners of Germany

Peter Ritz had to postpone his "Mediterranean Project" - a ride around the Mediterranean - for another year, but decided instead to ride to all four corners of Germany.

This tour was designed to take him through 10 federal states: North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Thuringia, Saxony-Anhalt and Saxony.

From Aachen Peter planned to ride to the most western town Selfkant, then to Oberstdorf/Allgäu (southernmost town in Germany), then List/Sylt (the northernmost town) via Kiel, and from List ride back to Görlitz (most easterly town in Germany). Arrival there is planned on 4.November 2006.

January 2007 - He made it!
