CITY CYCLING in Bonn
CITY CYCLING is a campaign developed by Climate Alliance (the largest network of cities, municipalities and districts committed to protecting the world’s climate). The aim of CITY CYCLING is to foster climate protection and to promote cycling. All municipalities worldwide are invited to participate in the campaign on 21 consecutive days between 1 May and 30 September.
Bonn takes part in the campaign from 10 to 30 May 2018!
The aim is to cover as many kilometres as possible by bike for both private and professional purposes in order to help protect the climate, promote cycling and improve the quality of life in municipalities – and ultimately have fun!
Who is able to participate?
Anyone who lives, works, belongs to a club or attends school or university in Bonn.
How can I sign up?
It only takes two easy steps:
- Sign up on city-cycling.org/radlerbereich
- Either join an existing team or form a new one. If you decide to form a new team, you will automatically be designated the team captain. You can join or form a team up until the very last day of the campaign (30 May 2018). Alternatively, Bonn has an “open” team that you are able to join.
It is not possible to participate in CITY CYCLING as a “teamless” cyclist – after all, climate protection and cycling promotion require teamwork!,
How do I collect kilometres?
Enter every kilometre you cover by bike from 10 to 30 May in your online log - either directly via the CITY CYCLING app or by logging into the cyclist portal at city-cycling.org/radlerbereich. If you do not have internet access, simply submit your kilometre log to your local coordinator at the end of each week.
It does not matter where the kilometres were covered – after all, climate protection knows no city or state boundaries. Cycling competitions as well as indoor training on stationary bikes are excluded here.
It is possible to record the kilometres cycled by multiple cyclists (e.g. entire families, school classes, etc.) in the same online cycling log.
Everything classified as a bicycle in the German Highway Code (StVO) is permitted – this includes pedelecs with an engine output of up to 250 W.
See city-cycling.org/rulesofparticipationindetail/ for the full rules of participation.
