Cycling for fitness and climate Team TU Braunschweig takes part in city cycling again

39,900 kilometres – almost once around the world – were covered by 220 cyclists from Technische Universität Braunschweig in last year’s city cycling event. The TU team came first in the overall standings – a success that is to be followed up this year. All interested people are cordially invited to join the team.

From 4 to 24 September, STADTRADELN (CITY CYCLING) in Braunschweig is back. The TU Braunschweig already has a team for which anyone interested can register. Team captain Prof. Sándor Fekete from the Institute of Operating Systems and Computer Networks gives a foretaste of cycling in a video and would like to convince other interested people to join in. This year, the Green Office is also supporting the city cycling for the first time.


STADTRADELN (CITY CYCLING) is a campaign by Climate Alliance to promote cycling and climate protection. It is also a competition in which the aim is to cycle as many daily journeys as possible in a climate-friendly way for 21 days. It doesn’t matter whether you already cycle every day or have so far cycled rather infrequently. Every kilometre counts – especially if you would otherwise have completed it by car. So far, more than 2,700 people have registered for Braunschweig’s city cycling (as of 25 August).

How can I join the TU team?

Those interested in TU Braunschweig can easily access the registration via a link. You can then register or log in and then join an existing TU team. The TU team is preset via the link. Alternatively, you can manually select the “TU Braunschweig” team. The kilometres cycled can be documented via the city cycling app, the online cycling calendar or in a printed form.
