Erik Zabel is a real workhorse, who not only rides a full program on the road from January to October, but also fills in the off-season with Six-Day races (which, of course, he frequently wins). So what does a man like that do for vacation? He takes part in the Cycling Week on the cruiseship Aida.

Zabel, and team-mates Björn Schröder and Enrico Poitschke are on the high seas for a week, as of November 18, along with more than 30 participants in the program, co-sponsored by Tour magazine. The participants will train with the professionals, do spinning on the pool deck and ride up to 60 kilometres a day on the Canary Islands.
