€1.500 for Orscheler helfen Orschelern

Local cyclist John Degenkolb, who took part in the cycle race on 1st May through Oberursel, auctioned off the body suit he wore in the race at the car exhibiton “Autos in der Allee” to support the recently formed charity “Orscheler helfen Orschelern e.V.”

Pub Landlord Thomas Studanski was the highest bidder, offering €1.500, and the signed body suit is to be hung up in his restaurant “Das Waldtraut” at the Taunus Information Centre.

Oberursel’s “Day of the Bicycle”

The event was organised by the town itself and the local brance of the cycle club ADFC, who were also on hand to “code” visitors’ bike. [Read more…]
