Holger Seidel has an expertise of almost forty years of cycling experience. At the beginning he competed as a sprinter in track cycling and later in mountain biking. In addition, he has travelled the world on cycle tours lasting several months. For many years, his focus has been on long-distance cycling. He has competed in numerous brevets (distances from 200 to over 1,000 km), including the long-distance Paris-Brest-Paris race over 1,200 km. He has been riding velomobile very intensively for three years and is currently preparing for the record attempt.
He has always carried out his sport in his everyday life. Even for long distances he rode the bicycle to school and university. As managing director of the Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Erlebnispädagogik e.V., he rides the velomobile on many professional occasions. From the middle of 2022, he would like to do forego his company car completely and thus set an example for a more environmentally conscious approach in a professional context.
