About Ride Europe

Hello! Nice to meet you. I’m Bernd Rücker, the Founder of Ride Europe. Riding bikes has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I’m not just a cyclist; I’m a traveler, an adventurer, a randonneur, a bikepacker, a gravel cyclist, a mountain biker, a road cyclist. About my adventures, my cycle tours and my expertise I write in my blog www.audax-franconia.de. As founder and organiser of the bikepacking event Bikepacking-Franconia in Germany, I planned this multi-day event for more than 100 participants. 

I’ve explored some of the most incredible places both within and beyond Europe, but there’s something truly special about exploring the hills of Europe. After many years of accumulating experience and exploring the vast landscapes this continent has to offer, I’m excited to share my knowledge with you. Let’s embark on this journey together and discover the beauty of European cycling like never before.

"To exploring the world, there's no better companion than a bike."
