124 Swiss Passes Challenge

2nd bike record: The 124 Swiss Passes Challenge

I cycled all 124 Swiss passes in 26 days. It wasn't just about cycling over 56,000m uphill, the challenge started even before that.

Exactly 5 months before, because that was the time frame to turn the idea into a concrete project. I had to find sponsors, build a team of 5 people, organize hotels and logistics and then find the time and energy to train. In addition, there was an 8-person film team who also had their own ideas about the project.

I was now not only a cyclist, but also a project manager and executive. I talk about how I dealt with these challenges in my presentations.
