NIKO CYCLES AROUND THE GLOBE

The trip of a lifetime: On the 5th of January 2015, Niko Krauland set off from Salzburg to pedal the world. He knew that he had to grab the opportunity to fulfil his life’s dream – as long as he still can. Niko has just finished his studies, graduating with a teacher diploma in sports and geography. Next year he will start inspiring the kids at school with his passion for foreign countries and sports. Before starting his teacher position he’s travelling the world and sure will come back with many adventures to tell.

Niko’s route took him from Salzburg to Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and Bulgaria all the way to Turkey. By now he is riding his Pinion bike through Iran. And he doesn’t have to worry about his equipment at all: “The transmission works great. I don’t know what to write really, because everything works so smoothly.” The past 1.000 kilometres Niko has mainly cycled through desert terrain: crossing sand dunes, fighting storms and the heat with temperatures up to 40° C. “Without any problems at all.” 

The Austrian has inherited his wanderlust from his dad. When he was 13 years old his father took him on a multi-day cycling trip to Italy. That was also the spark that fostered his fascination for maps and adventures. “I’ve always loved foreign countries and cultures”, Niko says.
