The CITY CYCLING campaign takes place every year between 1 May and 30 September 2021. In the municipalities themselves, the campaign runs on 21 consecutive days to advocate climate protection and promote cycling. The participating municipalities are free to choose the exact campaign period.
To make the competition even more exciting, cyclists are now able to form subteams (e.g. for individual departments or classes) within their main team (company, school, public authority, club, etc.). The kilometres cycled count towards the subteam as well as the main team.
First, sign up for CITY CYCLING and join a main team. You will then have the option to “Create a new subteam” under “My team” after logging in. The person to create the subteam is automatically appointed as the subteam captain.
(For those wishing to register for the Most active municipal parliament prize category.)
When a cyclist signs up for the first time, they will be asked about their status as a parliamentarian or member of the local parliament and/or council. This information is decisive for the prize category of “Most active municipal parliament” in which Climate Alliance acknowledges municipalities’ achievements.
In principle, members of the local parliament are all persons belonging to the town/city/municipal/district council or committee. A right to vote is always decisive here. For towns/cities, there is also the option of adding members of district parliaments/local councillors, etc. and actively including them in the local CITY CYCLING campaign.
In case of doubt, please contact your local coordinator directly (details of the local contact(s) can be found on the subpages of the participating municipalities).
