Düsseldorf, spring 2022 Düsseldorf painter drives the Giro d'Italia as a solo and collects for the Cologne club - Cycling amateur Markus Reimann denies the three-week tour of Italy alone - The project solicits donations for “Bikes for Burundi Kids”

Markus Reimann (53 years old) master painter from Düsseldorf, has a great passion: racing bikes - paired with social commitment!

Reimann relies on the combination of long distances, symbolic events and a lot of performance for a good cause.

So this year he is heading to Italy to complete the three-week Giro d'talia, the last of the three major national cycling tours, single-handedly.

 

This is not the first time Reimann has set himself such a goal. Just last year he finished the Vuelta 2021 in Spain!

In the 2012/2013 season he rode his racing bike to all Fortuna away games from Düsseldorf. In 2017, he took the start of the Tour de France in his hometown as an opportunity to ride the entire Tour de France in front of the professionals.

At the Tour and the Vuelta, Reimann did what he is planning for the Giro this time: complete the entire tour on the original route alone. He tackles (almost) every single stage one day ahead of the pros. He reached the Champs Elysees on July 23, 2017. The Tour of Spain was even hotter than it was in France, where he had to drink up to ten liters of water a day. In the sweltering heat of late Iberian summer, Reimann tackled the 3,500-kilometer route with more than 55,000 meters of altitude difference.

The Giro awaits this time with four mountain finishes over 3,410 kilometers and 51,000 meters in altitude. It starts on May 6th in Budapest and ends on May 29th, 2022 in Verona! For logistical reasons, however, the three stages in Hungary are left out at the beginning, money is supposed to be collected (!) in the end.As always, the transfers between destinations and starting lines on the following day are exhausting. After all, Reimann is traveling with a support car, friends make sure that the car with overnight accommodation is in the right place and that there is always something to eat on board. Almost like the pros.The amateur Reimann (approx. 15-20,000 km/year in the saddle) faces such challenges on the one hand out of pure enthusiasm for cycling and a thirst for adventure, but also to collect donations for a charitable purpose and thus enable needy children in the East African landlocked country of Burundi to have their own bicycles. In 2017, that was 1,485 euros in donations and that was enough for twelve bikes. More than 6000 euros in donations have already been collected for La Vuelta. The association www.burundikids.de, which has been supporting local projects in Burundi in an exemplary manner for years, handles the donations (prominent supporters of the association include Bettina Böttinger and Ulrike Folkerts).Markus would be very happy about a media mention, regular reporting during the ride can be requested, or ideally shared via our own social media channels, according to the 2017 motto: "I bike - you like!"Markus is now available for interviews or further information: www.facebook.com/burundibikes www.instagram.com/burundibikes/ www.burundibikes.de The club: www.burundikids.org Contact: Markus Reimann mail: brundibikes@gmx .de Tel: 0171/ 2762339
