Ladies first! Officially registration for this year's MB400 is due the 01st of January 2020. However, to ensure a more equal field of participants we came up with a few ideas. One of which is the following: if you don't identify as cis-male, you can now register. There is a special Facebook group for all enquiries in this regard. No facebook account? No worries, just send us a mail!

The event


Denn der Mensch, der zur schwankenden Zeit auch schwankend gesinnt ist, der vermehret das Übel und breitet es weiter und weiter.


June 26th is the anniversary of the death of Maurice Brocco called Coco, a early to mid 20th century road racer after whom the Leipzig based cycling project is named. For the 5th time already, we will be leaving Leipzig on June 20th ready to take on a tour in his honour, just like road racers back in the days used to: cycling many miles without the streets being fenced off.

This year is MB400s 5th anniversary. No worries, it won't be a 500 KM route this time, but we did think of some things to sauce up the challenge. The route isn't completely confirmed just yet, but let's just say our fascination for hillier and mountaineous terrain hasn't faded.

We will set up four different checkpoints along the route. The tour starts and finishes in Leipzig. Further information concerning the other checkpoints will be be released soon.

Every checkpoint will provide a place to rest and some food to fuel your body and mind. Motorised transport to the next checkpoint or train station will be available if needed along the road.
