We are three women who love sports and traveling.
Andrea, a spin doctor, loves traveling around the world by bike, prefereably in the company of Barbara and Andrea.
Andrea did longer tours in Asia, South America as well as in Europe. She organized those adventures on own, meaning she was planning the routes and changing plans as she aws moving along. Barbara motivated her to enter the Tuscany Trail in 2021. First rather skeptical, Andrea fell in love with this new kind of traveling: luggage on front and back of her bike, riding an organized route with a lot of other people, making new friendships and having fun together while also being in a bit of a competition.
After participating on the Umbria Trail in 2022, joining a funny group of Italians, the idea of the “Salt&Lake Trail” was born. Just settled into the area of the Salzkammergut and knowing the routes all around, a first draft of the route was created. Bringing Barbara and Andrea on board and founding the “Not Only Women (NOW) Bikepacking team” was the next step to start this event.
And NOW we are really looking forward to bringing people from all around the world to our event and to do our best to find and provide the best paths in the area combined with sightseeing and leisure.
