What is the Steppenwolf?

The Steppenwolf is an uncommercial selfsupported bikepacking challenge across the country from Berlin to Usedom and back. In 2021, the 30 starters cycled over 650 km full of variety between technical trails at the Oderbruch, the beach promenade of Usedom, some nasty cobblestone sections and several kilometers along Brandenburg lakes across the steppe. In 2022 we want to complement the original wild track with an easier short track. Whether alone or as a pack, for speed or as a personal challenge - the Steppenwolf is for everyone.
It is not a classic bike race but a wild ride between metropolis and sea that really challenges everyone.


Save the date: On May 12, 2022 the Steppenwolf will start in Bernau (near Berlin) for its second edition towards Usedom. You will get more information in the next weeks, because we are planning some little news. Stay tuned!


On 01 January at 00.00 the registration for the Steppenwolf started - at midnight the 100 places were already full. Since the waiting list is also full, registration is closed for this year. We are especially happy that many women* and non-binaries have registered this year!
