TR2012 - Planning
TransRussia - there is still an increase of madness possible! :o)
For the year 2012 Manfred's cycling friend, the extreme-sportsman Alexey Boldarev, offered a new immense challenge:
A bicycle race over a distance of 3,000 kms!
The racing led across all climate zones of the northern half of the earth.
Manfred took part in this long-distance racing. It should be a hard test of the physical limits ...and should be adventure pure! :-)

LEL2009 - The ride
London–Edinburgh–London (LEL) ist ein Radmarathon, der als Brevet durchgeführt wird. Das bedeutet, dass jeder Teilnehmer seine Fahrweise und Pausen auf der rund 1400 km langen Strecke selbst bestimmt. Das Zeitlimit beträgt 116:40 Stunden inklusive aller Pausen.
LEL gilt als britisches Gegenstück zu Paris–Brest–Paris (PBP) und findet ebenso alle vier Jahre statt (zuletzt 2005). Die Route verläuft auf einem Hin- und Rückkurs zwischen den Hauptstädten von England (London) und Schottland (Edinburgh). Es handelt sich um den längsten regelmäßig durchgeführten Radmarathon, der als BRM (Brevet Randonneur Mondiaux) anerkannt wird.
Der Radmarathon fand erstmals 1989 mit 29 ausschließlich britischen Teilnehmern statt, von denen 26 innerhalb des Zeitlimits angekommen sind.
2009 wurde die Anzahl der Starter auf 620 limitiert. 412 Teilnehmer erreichten das Ziel. Manfred hatte die Startnummer 328 und absolvierte die 1400 km in 109:05 Stunden.

Die Liste der glücklichen Finisher ist hier zu finden: https://manfred-tinebor.fotki.com/journals/lel2009/entry/fqbfwskgkrg/

The first LEL was in 1989, when there were 29 starters and 26 finishers, all British.

This Album shows photos of Manfred's southbound ride from Edinburgh back to London passing the control stations Traquair - Eskdalemuir - Brampton - Barnard Castle - Thirsk - Pocklington - Market Rasen - Kirkton - St Ives - Great Easton - Loughton. Manfred reached the final point happily without accident or mishap. However, for getting a medal Manfred's total time was not short enough. Manfred enjoyed the wonderful scenery a little bit too long! :-)

Schloss Wewelsburg
• Die Wewelsburg ist eine Höhenburg mit dreieckigem Grundriss in der Nähe von Paderborn / Nordrhein-Westfalen. Bereits im 11. Jahrhundert stand dort auf dem Hügel eine Burg . Im 16. Jahrhundert ließ der Paderborner Bischof das heutige Burgschloss im Stil der Weserrenaissance auf Grundlage der alten bestehenden Burg errichten. Von 1934 bis 1945 wurde das Burgschloss von der SS genutzt und teilweise umgestaltet. Der Putz der Aussenwände wurde abgeschlagen, damit die Burg ein trutzigeres Aussehen bekam.
Heute wird die Wewelsburg als Museum und Jugendherberge genutzt.

• Wewelsburg is a hill fort with a triangular layout in North Rhine-Westphalia near Paderborn. There on a hill was already a fort in the 11th century. In the 16th century, the Bishop of Paderborn let build the present castle in style of Weser Renaissance. From 1934 to 1945, the castle was occupied by the SS and partly redesigned. The outside plaster was beaten off, so that the castle got a formidable strengthened appearance.
Today the castle is used as museum and youth hostel.
