Well… I will tell a bit about myself.
I’m 47 years old, live in Allerød north of Copenhagen. I’m educated physicist from Copenhagen University. I’m working as IT-consultant from my own company (without employees). My area is Office and web-development.
I have been a velonout since November 2007 where I bought a Leiba Classic. April this year I sold my Leiba and purchased a very nice green Orca with e-assist (I had also assist on the Leiba). I use my bike for commuting and have around 2.500 km in the Orca so far. (http://www.fam-ostergaard.dk/Thor/Orca.aspx)
I am the lucky owner of a food allergy – I’m allergic to all milk and soya products. Because of that, I can only eat food I have made myself or with reliable declarations. I will therefore bring a stove on the ride and plan to cook my own food on the way. So it is not to be selfish or ungrateful, that I don´t share my food or say no thanks to yours – it is simply just a necessity.
My wife and son will be at an orchestra master class while we are riding and I think about leaving the ride in Vordingborg and go to Jutland to join them.
Looking forward to the ride and meet your all.July 4, 2014 at 19:21 #310
I will continue:
My age is 47 years old, I live in the northernmost area of Denmark. I am a former teacher, now a full-time velonaut. My current velomobile is a Strada that I have 32,000 km on the odometer since November 2012. I also owned a Leitra 2010-2012, which I managed to cycle 35,000 kilometers in before it was hit by a car.
My passion is cycling long trips/rides in my velomobile, however I stop this tour in Gothenburg. Although I love to cycle in velomobile, I love my wife more, and would like to be home for our 20 year wedding anniversary

I also drive a custom-built 4-wheel cycle taxi in Copenhagen when not at school. Been riding recumbents of various shapes, sizes, and wheel counts since 2000.
Look forward to meeting you all in either Göteborg or Copenhagen!

Hello, my name is Thomas. I live in Cologne and I’m 58 years old. Since I’ve been five, I like riding bicycles in my everyday life. In the last years, the velomobile came into my life, too. First I drove a Leitra. With it, I took part of the Eurotour 2013. It was a great experience. Unfortunately I couldn’d end the tour because of a mechanical break. At December 2013, I got an Orca. I wonder, what will happen now.
I’ll drive through the Netherlands and northern Germany to the Kiel-Oslo ferry. See you, ThomasJuly 16, 2014 at 17:55 #330
Peter from EastwestfaliaParticipant
Hi, I am Peter from Eastwestfalia. My place is near Bethel. I am still 58 years old, but will arrive at the ferry at the age of 59. I changed from Leitra to Orca as Thomas. Looking forward to meeting you all in Oslo. I shall try a better performance than last year. If you want to see a picture, look above the events calender. I am the second from left, with my Leitra, which we shall see again in Rostock with the new owner …

Hello fellow riders. My name is Carl Georg Rasmussen, 79 old and Leitra-rider since 1980.
My first long distance tours: Oslo-Trondheim-Oslo in 1984, Paris-Brest-Paris in 1987, Cross Iowa 2004 and many tours in Europe, winter and summer,including the Euro Tour 2013.
I find it an attractive challenge to be self supporting when touring, and to be able to ride all year independent of weather in a velomobile. Have had no car the last 33 years.
