On 24.09. the Iberia Traversa starts in Irun, on the Spanish-French border.
From there it goes non-supported, across Spain, on mostly unpaved roads, to Tarifa, the southernmost point of the European continent.
I am anything but really fit. After the TCR I had to take a break. After that a short illness added to it. Little training in the last weeks. So I will take it easy and try to enjoy Spain. However, it won’t be a walk in the park. Unfortunately, I know myself too well for that.
I hope that tracking will be provided by the organizer.
All news I will share from Thursday, 21.09. in a liveblog.
Please keep your fingers crossed for the more than 1700 km across the Iberian Peninsula.
Thanks for your donations and support
With Miles4Malabon I support 125 preschool children in the Philippines to enable them to attend elementary school.
All donations go first to the project group Malabon e.V., which has the direct contact to Malabon and allocates the money to the corresponding project.
Betterplace is a non-profit organization that takes care of all payment transactions, including the issuing of donation receipts. The money goes directly to the respective non-profit organization, in this case to the project group Malabon e.V. A direct transfer to me is not possible, respectively not wanted, that would only mean unnecessary effort for me, and also transparency, as provided by betterplace, would not be manageable for me as a private person. I prefer to spend my time on the bike to motivate more people to donate.
Currently, payments via PayPal, direct debit, credit card, paydirect or bank transfer are possible through betterplace.
Betterplace transfers the funds directly to the Malabon e.V. project group. In return, proof must be provided that the funds have been used for the appropriate purpose. In addition, I also receive regular information about the 125 preschool children who are supported by the program.
Every donor receives a donation receipt from betterplace in February of the following year for all donations made in the previous year.
Of course you can also support me in other ways. Sometimes it needs some help with the organization, or just accompaniment on long training rides. Sharing these activities and actions in the social media, and perhaps providing me with contacts to generate attention in these media, is also a help.
A direct sponsorship via Miles4Malabon is not possible. If you would like to donate on a long-term and regular basis, you can do so with the Malabon project group as a so-called sponsor. This is especially interesting for companies.
The simplest possibility is that of a direct donation. It is also possible to put your company logo or name on my jersey, which I wear during training and events. For this, however, I ask in advance for direct contact. For other ideas please also just contact me.
No! No donations are used to finance the activities, i.e. entry fees, fees, transport, accommodation, food, etc., and for the purchase of my equipment. I am very happy to pay for that out of my own pocket. Should there be any interest in sponsoring, in whatever form, please contact me.
