Soon there will be another new player software with which my videos will be fully compatible. More about this when it is generally available.
The severe thunderstorm catastrophe in the west of Germany and Belgium with presumably far more than 100 fatalities shows how urgently something has to be done against the advancing climate change.
Maybe that's why we'll get above 30% participation for the first time in the next quarter?
The RLV from the Eifel passes exactly through the most affected region, through the Ahr valley and from km 59 through the village of Schuld,
where quite a few houses have collapsed. So I will be donating all proceeds from the sales of this RLV from the next 4 weeks to the flood relief efforts there.
The second quarter is now closed and a total of
6 euros have been donated. The participation was again around 26%, thank you very much! In addition, I have compensated for the distances covered by car for filming.
In total, 350 kg CO2 can be compensated with this.
New action offfer
Once again there is a new action offer. This time you can choose from 24 videos 5 rlvs for a total price of 25 euros and save up to 15 euros.
From today, the second of the current seasonal packages is reduced, which is now available for 55 instead of 80 euros.
In the current bestseller list, there is a new frontrunner with the Schinderhannes Cycle Route (from 5th place). Somewhat surprisingly, with the
RLV Ofenpass-Flüelapass, a somewhat older video has climbed into the top 10 at number 6. The last new video Pässegourmet Part 2 has entered directly at position 10.
Ofen pass - Flüela pass
Pässegourmet part 2
New demo version
I have created a new demo version the second video from Portugal, which will be released in autumn. I think this is a particularly nice video and it will be a lot of fun to drive.
Second round of price reductions
Today is the second round of this year's price reductions. With the videos on La Palma and from Djursland are also included 2
double packs, which became accordingly cheaper.
National Park Bavaria
Valley of the tears
New price reductions and videos that will be withdrawn from the program
It's time again for a few assortment adjustments. So I will shortly be removing the two videos Appenzell and Freiolsheimer from the program. In addition, there is the first wave of new
price reductions today, which in part also indicates that the offer will end soon.
La Palma Southern
Croix de Fer
King of the Lake
News about the leaderboard
The list of the best of the training sessions for a real life video, which was introduced six months ago, is very well received. Currently there are almost 500 entries from 30 drivers.
And all supported platforms are represented. So thank you very much for your participation!
Last new video
This is the second stage of the round trip in the Vosges with almost 120 km and over 2700 meters of altitude over a total of 5 passes. Immediately after the start on the main road behind the Col du Page,
you will cross the Col d'Oderen on a good road towards the Grand Ballon. From Saint-Amarin we take the southwest approach on the Great Belchen. From the top of the pass it goes directly over the Route-des-Crêtes back to Cernay.
Of course, both stages are also available together in a double pack at a discount of 5 euros. Alternatively, the latest new videos are available in a
third season pack and this can save around 15%.
Pässegourmet part 2
This is the second of the three Rondane RLVs. It starts at the end of part one, at 1000 meters above sea level at Grimsdalshytta. You go down into the Grimsdalen valley and follow it back to Vegaskilet.
And of course there is again the introduction of the filmmaker.
The name Portugal comes from the port of Porto, established by the Roman Empire. It is disputed what is meant by Cale. It could come from the Latin calidus, "warm" - "warm port". Or from the ancient
Greek word kalós - "beautiful harbor". Today appears the first of several videos from Portugal. In addition, there is again the introduction of the filmmaker.
In the first new video of the year, we travel from Munich to Prague. And we do so in just a few minutes. However, we're not talking about the capitals of the same name, but two smaller villages in Lower Bavaria.
The route is typically very hilly with the longer, namesake climb to the Neidlingerberg.
Rondane Part 2
Three new videos for Christmas
The Schinderhannes cycle path in the Hunsrück is 38 km long and runs along the route of the former Hunsrück railway from Simmern via Kastellaun to Emmelshausen. The Klosterwege (Monastery trails)
are part of a series of tours in the northern Black Forest that I will publish in the near future. Sognefjellet is one of the most famous mountain passes in Norway. It is also the highest moutain pass in Northern Europe.
In addition, the six new videos released since September are now available in their own download package.
Klosterwege Part 1
The Michaelskapelle is a Baroque pilgrimage church on the Michaelsberg near Untergrombach on the western edge of the Kraichgau hill country. It was built from 1742 to 1744 on behalf of the Speyer
prince-bishop Damian Hugo von Schönborn and renovated in 2007.
The next new video is with Frosta a peninsula in the middle of Norway, inside the Trondheim fjord. This RLV starts and ends on the very tip of the peninsula. On its way around the peninsula,
it visits several places, including the old abbey ruins on the Tautra island. This RLV is mostly quite flat, but there are some short, steep hills.
Today the recording of the Kiel Canal from Kiel to Brunsbüttel is published, i.e. in the opposite direction to the previously published route. The route goes right at the beginning a short piece
"over land" and later through Rendsburg. Afterwards it goes only along the canal, shortly before end we cross the canal even on one of the many ferries.
This version is over 40 km longer than the KWT Edition.
New videos for the 2020/2021 season
As every year at this time, the first new videos of the 2020/2021 season are released today (apart from the pre-release). Due to the corona-related travel restrictions, there will probably be a
few tracks less this season, so this first release will contain only 4 videos instead of the usual 6. I hope there will be something for most of you anyway!
The Challenge Heilbronn will take place on the 2018 changed track and instead of two loops in the Zabergäu we will now only ride one big bike lap, which now also includes the Kraichgau.
The Pässegourmet is a quite demanding round tour in the Vosges mountains with almost 120 km and over 2700 altitude meters over a total of 5 passes. The route between Bitschwiller-Les-Thann
and Saint-Maurice-sur-Moselle is identical to the corresponding section of the 6th stage of the Tour de France 2019. Rondane is the first part of a three-part series of RLVs that runs
around the Rondane mountains. Ameisberg (ant hill) was so named because from a distance it looks like an anthill. But its summit rises to almost 1000 meters.
Of course there is also a season package again, which contains all videos released so far.
