The ABC: Climate protection, healthy exercise and lots of fun

By participating in the ABC your institution combines healthy exercise with sustainable mobility and climate protection, even during the pandemic. Both, students and all staff are invited to take part. The common goal: to cycle as many kilometers as possible.

Within your selected participation month between April and November 2021, your staff members and students go by bike and record their daily trips with a free app provided by us.

The ABC counts all recorded trips and provides various exciting rankings for individuals, participant-generated teams, academic disciplines and institutions. Who will be most active? Do e.g. biologists, lawyers or physicians cycle most? How does your institution perform worldwide?

Everybody's fun, team spirit, and exercise is in the ABC spotlight. Sportive performance is possible but not required. Benefit from many ABC advantages for your university:

Benefits for universities

Health

It's evident that daily cycling keeps the mind and the body fit and it significantly reduces the need for medical leave.

Visibility

The ABC enhances participating institutions’ international image.

Team Building

Teams, faculties and your university or college as a whole will have a common goal. This creates team spirit and positive interaction.

Climate Protection

The ABC directly induces CO2 avoidance. That's a contribution to climate protection your university or college can be proud of.

Environment

The more people cycle the less unhealthy emissions arise. This positive impact will be mensurable on ABC campuses.

Fun

As a vibrant community action, the ABC creates fun, identity, and a sense of belonging, leading to happy working and studying.

Quality of Life

The more people cycle, the better for local traffic and quality of life. The ABC boosts cycling and improves the local traffic situation.

Simplicity

The ABC is an easy to apply effective campaign, that is effortlessly ready to implement at any academic institution.
