City Cycling – Cycling for a better climate

Climate Alliance invites municipalities and municipal parliaments to take part in the campaign

This May Climate Alliance is kicking off the 10th round of its City Cycling campaign. The organisation is calling on members of the public and of municipal parliaments to cycle for a better climate and promote sustainable mobility. In 2017, for the first time, municipalities outside of Germany will have the opportunity to participate.

Biking instead of driving – this is one key message of the City Cycling campaign. This year, Climate Alliance is holding the campaign for the 10th time in Germany but for the first time worldwide. Registration is now open to residents of registered municipalities and regions at Participation pays off: with each cycled kilometre participants show their support for climate action and promote cycling in their municipality while improving its ranking in this cycling competition. City Cycling runs annually from May until September.


In 2017, towns, cities and regions worldwide can take part in City Cycling. “This opportunity is especially interesting for municipalities with German partner cities, for example. Municipalities across international borders can now carry out the campaign in direct competition with each other while working together in the name of sustainable mobility and climate action,” enthuses campaign manager André Muno. Participating municipalities whose official language is neither German nor English will receive a 20% discount on participation fees.

Stadtradeln is an international campaign of the Climate Alliance and is supported by Ortlieb, ABUS, Stevens Bikes, Busch + Müller, Paul Lange & Co., WSM, Trek-kingbike, Hebie and Schwalbe in Germany. Registration for municipalities is possible until September.
