Academic Bicycle Challenge (ABC) 2022

The Academic Bicycle Challenge (ABC) is an international Cycling Contest for universities and higher education institutions. It combines joyful cycling, healthy exercise, and climate protection. The common goal: collecting as many cycled miles as possible. Let us show, that fitness and also climate protection are important for us and let us bike for our University. Collect kilometres for your team and for our OVGU! All kilometres count - everywhere - whether in your leisure time or on the way to work.

For the whole June 2022 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.
