Stadtradeln – cycling for the climate

As in previous years, Oberursel is taking part in the annual “Stadtradeln” campaign to get as many members of the public to leave their cars behind and use a bicycle instead.

Between 2nd and 22nd June, 2014, teams in the town will be trying to ride as many kilometres as possible, at the same time trying to beat the 2013 total of 44.641km.
