City Cycling 2021

May 1 - 21, 2021


The “Sister Cities” of Greifswald (Germany) and Newport News (USA) are competing against one another in an international cycling competition designed to increase the bonds of friendship, improve the environment and foster cultural understanding.

STADTRADELN, or City Cycling, is an amateur cycling competition that takes place across Europe from May to September. Teams composed of at least two compete over a 21-day period against cyclists in their own city to “cover as many kilometers as possible.” The competition aims to “protect the climate, promote cycling and improve the quality of life in municipalities and, ultimately, have fun.”

Greifswald has participated in “STADTRADELN” since 2015 and enrolled 75 teams in 2020. Newport News to be the first U.S. city to official join the competition. Ultimately, STADTRADELN-CITY CYCLING provides a creative way for citizens in both communities to safely connect and exchange during a global pandemic with the goal of “Shaping the Future Together.”
