One DNA, two bullheads.
Paul and Hansen, 29, are best friends, flat mates and sometimes worst enemies. They´re identical twins, but rather untypical. Up to now, they´ve always lived in separate cities and did their own thing. Some years ago they discovered that the best times they spent together were those spent on the bike heading for something.
„Cycling? Well, its more than just the sport to us. It’s somehow like the best way to move outdoors, to move out in the wild, to move anywhere where there’s adventure! Its a way to reach almost every place in the world if you just take your time” says Paul.
They are from southern Germany, Lake of Konstanz, where they grew up with the surrounding nature, the mountains called Alps .
Paul has graduated in Media Design in Cologne and now studies Human Factors at the Institute of Technology in Berlin (humanfactors.tu-berlin.de). In between he worked as Online Conceptor at Virtual Identity (virtual-identity.com)
Hansen: “Paul is a absolute supporter of good planning. He is comfortable when he thought of every eventuality and always has a plan B prepared. With this preference he spared me allot of problems and, hoe knows, maybe sometimes saved my life. Never the less he loves adventure. His spontaneity suffers in no case under his liability to planning. Often it is his ideologic way making the successful realization of crazy seeming ideas possible at all. Indeed I was the one that had to convince him of our project being possible- but once he took the bait, he doesn’t let go anymore.”
Paul:” Of course I read what Hansen wrote about me in the text above and I have to say, he somehow is right, even if he tends to exaggeration from time to time. So, where els could the journey lead us to than to the remotest place reachable by bike, from Berlin to Shanghai, the city of superlatives. He is one of the few people I know that not only disregards conventions but looks for them on purpose to break them. No technical system is save from his experimental optimization-craze and there are hardly problems that haven’t been solved by his MacGyver-Improvisations.
