Australia!
The fifth continent at the other end of the world is with 7.7 million square kilometres the sixth-largest state on our earth and at the same time the largest island. The continent is not only large, hot and mainly uninhabited but has also the longest national road in the world. For most travelers it is already strain enough to drive this highway in a car.

But on a bicycle? Why not? Not on a “normal bicycle”, but on a Pedelec!

Why with an E-Bike?
In my adventures it is important for me to break new ground. I find the E-Bike technology very interesting and want to find out whether or not it is possible to cover a distance of 18.000 km with this new kind of bicycle. This journey will be the longest ever made with an E-Bike.

The Route
To explain the route is easy: Start of the journey 1st of January 2012 in Sydney in front of the landmark of the city, the world-famous Sydney Opera House. We will follow the Highway No. 1 clockwise and will arrive in Sydney on the 30th of June, exactly half a year later. Between the two dates lie 18,000 exciting kilometres. Due to the isolation of the continent a unique flora and fauna could develop. 85% of the plants and animals found in Australia do not exist on any other continent.
But only 22 million people live in Down Under, most of them at the east coast. The west and the interior, also called Outback, are to a large extent uninhabited. Arid climate shapes this region. In summer the temperatures rise up to 50 degrees Celsius and water is rare. It won’t be easy to cycle such a distance.
