From 1 to 21 June, the CITY CYCLING competition goes into the next round. The aim of the competition is to use the bicycle as often as possible within the 21 days and thus not only to make a contribution to climate protection, but also to ensure a better quality of life in the municipalities.

The CITY CYCLING campaign contributes making cycling more present in public discourse and supports the targeted improvement of cycling infrastructure. The routes tracked by app during CITY CYCLING are evaluated anonymously by “Technische Universität Dresden” and the results are passed on to the municipalities.

Who can participate?
CITY CYCLING is intended for everyone. Regardless of whether the bicycle is already used as the main means of transport or spends most of its time in the basement. Every kilometre cycled counts. Even more so if it would otherwise have been covered by car.

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology is taking part in this campaign and has founded the team “Fakultät für Elektrotechnik & Informationstechnik”. To join the Faculty team, registration is required. You can join our team until the last of the 21 CITY CYCLING days.

The kilometres covered can either be entered online in the km-book or tracked via the CITY CYCLING app (Android and iOS). But participation is also possible without internet access. In this case, cyclists can report their cycling kilometres weekly to the local CITY CYCLING coordination via a kilometre log sheet.

Even though it is primarily about promoting cycling and protecting the environment, there are also prizes to be won, among others, for the most active municipalities and municipal parliaments.

For more information, feel free to take a look at the CITY CYCLING website.

We look forward to your participation!
