Pics shooted in Mexico
Start Munich/ GER on Sep. 26th 2020
Like most places along the route, the resort of Cancun in the far east of Mexico gave him a grand welcome. Deichmann crossed deserts, jungles, and high mountains in the style of Forrest Gump encouraging thousands of runners to run part of the way.
As with all his projects, Deichmann is traveling unsupported and carrying all his own luggage. On the swim course, he pulled a specially constructed raft behind him, and on the run course, he used a children’s trailer fixed to his hip for this purpose.
The Munich native, who already holds the world records for all major continental crossings by bicycle, wants to draw attention to climate change with his project and is collecting donations for World Bicycle Relief and Oxfam via his website www.jonasdeichmann.com. A documentary film and a book about the current project will be published soon. Jonas Deichmann will travel from Cancun to Portugal and from there by bicycle to the starting point in Munich, where he’ll be expected at the end of November.
A cyclist, tech geek at heart, a passion for new shiny things and a huge appetite for triathlon. I spend most of my time between managing two of the world's best triathletes and a traditional corporate life.
