Konz cycles for a good climate! - Konz Municipality supports the Climate Alliance campaign CITY CYCLING
In the CITY CYCLING campaign of the Climate Alliance, citizens throughout Germany pedal for more climate protection. In addition to the fun of cycling, the campaign is about getting as many people as possible to switch to cycling in everyday life and thus make a contribution to climate protection.
The Verbandsgemeinde of Konz is from September 4th to 24th, 2022 with the party. During this period, everyone who lives, works, belongs to a club or attends school in the Konz municipality can take part in the CITY CYCLING campaign of the Climate Alliance. The aim is to collect as many kilometers by bike as possible. Every kilometer that is covered by bike for work, leisure or vacation during the campaign period can be counted. Interested parties can register now https://www.stadtradeln.de/verbandsgemeinde-konz .
The district of Trier-Saarburg will also take part in the city cycling campaign from September 4th to 24th, 2022. Interested parties can also apply here https://www.stadtradeln.de/landkreis-trier-saarburg Sign in. A separate account is required for each participation. A joint start is planned for subsequent participations.
“Years ago, cycling was mainly reserved for children and recreational athletes. Today, the bicycle has also established itself as a means of transport for everyday traffic, in addition to its tourist use. We want to further increase the share of cycling in transport performance and thus not only contribute to climate protection, but also to improving the quality of life in Konz," says Mayor Joachim Weber.
Stadtradeln relies on joint action when participating. Therefore, participation takes place in teams. A team can already consist of two people and can be put together, for example, from family members, friends, colleagues, fellow students, classmates or club members. Individuals can join the "Open Team - Konz" and collect kilometers there together.
The Climate Alliance honors the most active cyclists nationwide and individual cyclists. The CITY CYCLING competition is all about having fun cycling and great prizes, but above all about getting as many people as possible to switch to cycling in everyday life and thereby make a contribution to climate protection. If around 30 percent of short distances of up to six kilometers in city centers were cycled instead of by car, around 7.5 million tons of CO2 could be avoided.
