Jede Meile zählt

Nordkapp > Gibraltar
Distanz bis ZielAm Zielkm


The two cyclists Marcus Niessl and Andreas Isler begin their journey on August 1st 2016 from the North Cape (Norway, most northern point of Europe).
During their 3-month journey to Gibraltar they will be accompanied by a support vehicle. (driven by family members and friends).

The journey takes them along the west coast of Norway to Bergen. From there they proceed by ferry to the most northern point of Scottland (Giles) followed by a north-south-cycle of Scotland and England to Dover.

From Callais they continue steady along the west coast of France, Spain and Portugal to Gibraltar (after a photo stop in Tarifa LINK) the southernmost city of Europe. That’s the goal which they are hoping to achieve by the end of October 2016.
Their journey is being tracked on their blog which you can follow anytime.

Their induvidual goal during their two-month sabbatical is to achieve 8’000 km and their team goal is to achieve a minimum of CHF 50’000 in favor of the project – Rotary for Kids and Teens.

The purpose of Rotary and Inner Wheel is to support socio economically underprivileged children and teens. Their vision is to enable them to develop their potential and talents and to be integrated into society. Their work contains of prevention work in order to ensure lasting effects.

Since Andreas Isler is the Vice President of ROKJ, both cyclists have decided that 100% of the proceeds will be donated to ROKJ. Thanks to all the volunteer work no subtractions will be made.
