Academic Bicycle Challenge


The Academic Bicycle Challenge is an international competition for universities. The competition is looking for the universities with the most active cyclists.

For the whole June 2019 you are invited to spend as much time as you can riding your bicycle for your own fitness, climate protection and to support the OVGU.

How do I take part?

Just install the Naviki-App (Google Play or App Store) and activate your participation. You can either join a team or form your own. Now you can start riding your bicycle and collect kilometers to bring your team to the top of the ranking.

Every student or employee of the OVGU can take part in that challenge. The first 100 participants can buy the OVGU bicycle Challenge shirts for just 10,- Euro (instead of 16,90 Euro). You can find the T-shirts in our Uni-Shop.
