Brand Experience Branding Company Event Exclusive

Brand experience

This event is designed for companies that want to use brand experiences for corporate communication. It's not an ordinary bike tour that you can book at every corner. At this event you will immerse yourself in different worlds such as extreme sports, mountain biking and mining in the Harz Mountains.

Extreme sports

In his lectures, Fritz talks about how he crossed the USA by bike in 10 days with the support of his team. He describes how he overcomes dry spells on the way to the goal, how the team makes decisions and what the years of preparation look like. With the help of the experience gained from over 10 years of extreme sports, he shows clearly how it is possible to achieve big goals.

Mountain biking

Mountain biking is about having fun on narrow paths going downhill, forgetting about everyday life for a moment while rolling along and striking up a conversation while winding up wide forest roads. In many events, experienced and inexperienced participants ride in a group. With rental mountain bikes with motor support and enough short breaks in between, everyone can manage the tour easily.

Mining in the Harz Mountains

On this day you will encounter visible traces of days long past in many places. The barn in which the event starts, the ditch paths on which you experience the landscape and the many ponds along the route all date from the time when the Harz was still considered the most important mining region in Europe.

Fritz Geers

During the tour you can not only learn a lot about the Harz from Fritz, but also ask questions about nutrition, driving technique or why.

Extreme athlete

At the age of 11, Fritz ran his first marathon. At 17 he cycled over 500 kilometers non-stop, then a thousand kilometers and at the age of 22 he rode 4,711 kilometers in one go. Now that Fritz is slowly approaching 30, he is pursuing the goal of becoming faster: At the Race Across America he wants to improve his time of 10 days 21 hours and 09 minutes over the 5,000 kilometer distance (He is the youngest German finisher in racing history ).

Mountain bike guide

Fritz completed several training courses and courses lasting several weeks to become an MTB guide in Germany, Italy and Great Britain. Since 2019, he has been offering guided mountain bike tours and multi-day tours in the Harz Mountains as a professional mountain bike guide in collaboration with other locals. Of course, you can rely on Fritz to warn the group about dangerous places, to help with tips and to be there if there are any problems with the bike that need to be solved.

Impulsive lectures

In his exciting lectures, Fritz shows tools that help make the right decisions in a team, solve problems and overcome dry spells. He takes you on a journey through his eventful life, talks about highs, lows and powerful feelings. Impressive photos and videos show how he works his way through deserts, mountains and nights on his bike to cross entire countries under his own power. Meanwhile, he describes his approaches and methods to overcome these challenges.
