Go, GBI, go! We cycle for charity!

This unique cycling tour with several hundred participants from all over the world will take us to Bratislava in Slovakia in 2023. From there we pedal through Austria and southern Germany to jointly celebrate the end of the tour in Munich.

On our tours we offer a broad range of services to provide you a very special experience. Even not well trained cyclists could manage to ride the daily distances. And if you really need to finish a stage earlier, our pickup service will bring you and your bike to the daily destination.

The mixture of different languages, nationalities and cultures creates the unique GBI spirit. And even rookies will perceive this spirit not later than the second day.


  • Explore the Slovakian capital of Bratislava
  • Visit the charming Austrian capital of Vienna
  • Discover Austrian hospitality
  • Pedal through various gorgeous regions
  • Enjoy alpine cuisine
  • Make new friends with many like-minded GBIans

2 tracks available

  • Track 1: 873km 7310m climbing
  • Track 2: 613km 3810m climbing

A lot of fun, unforgettable moments, great international and cross-cultural companionship, challenging moments and radiant eyes.
