It saddens us to announce that Brother in the Wild Munich has been cancelled due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation.
A huge amount of hard work has gone into this year’s event and we know that everyone was looking forward to it as much as we were! So we will keep our eye on the situation and, if possible and safe, rearrange something for later in the year. However for now we are forced to cancel the event and issue a refund to everyone that purchased tickets. Thank you everyone for your support and we hope to see you all out in the wild soon.

After last year’s success we’re excited to bring our bikepacking event ‘Brother in the Wild’ back to Munich this Summer – in collaboration with the good guys at Guten Biken and with the support of our navigation partner Komoot.
The event will be a 2 day ride starting and finishing at the Guten Biken shop in Munich’s historic city centre. On the first day participants will ride along the trails that follow the Isar river out of the city. The route is approximately 50km long and provides a great variety of both single-track and gravel roads winding their way through scenic upper Bavaria; all the time with a stunning mountain backdrop as you approach the Alps.
Along the way you will pass a number of restaurants to stop for food and drinks, and of course have the opportunity to cool off with a swim in the river! The ride will finish a stone’s throw from the Alps where the group will set up camp for a night under the stars. We will provide the following in camp:
– A bar serving soft drinks and beer from the fantastic Tilmans Biere craft beer house
– A BBQ cooked dinner with meat and vegan options
– Campfires and good vibes until late into the night
– Buffet continental breakfast Sunday morning
On the second day participants will embark on a new 100km route heading further into the foothills of the mountains. The ride will include some fantastic gravel trails, single-track, rivers, lakes and of course some Bavarian beer houses before eventually taking riders back into the heart of Munich.
Please note: there are multiple opportunities for participants to cut the ride short should they wish. The routes are mostly gravel, we therefore recommend an off-road capable bike with 33c tyres or larger.
