The "Nilrad" workshop aims to introduce children to cycling - through practical and playful exercises in cooperation with the police.

The action week includes over 30 cultural activities on the subject of cycling, aimed at all age groups, including the "CYCASSEL LAB", where participants receive a free bike fitting, the "Nilrad" workshop for children with playful exercises for more safety, knowledge and enjoyment of cycling and the open bike workshop "FIX & ROLL". The campaign locations are spread throughout the city, including the SDG+ Lab at the University of Kassel and the Institute for Sport and Sports Science.

The action week is organized by Cycassel, a group of students and lecturers from the University of Kassel as well as citizens of the city. "With the cycling week, we want to enable different approaches to cycling and convey the joy of cycling. Our particular strength is our interdisciplinary approach. This applies above all to the close cooperation between the University of Kassel and numerous non-university stakeholders," says Dr Julia Limmeroth, research assistant and head of task at the Institute of Sport and Sports Science and co-organizer of the cycling week.

The week officially begins on Monday evening, April 8, with the opening event. Individual projects have already been launched in advance, such as the BiciBus, in which a group of pupils cycle to school together on an agreed route and are accompanied by supervisors.

Background:

Cycassel originally emerged from a seminar at the University of Kassel. The aim of Cycassel is to spread the joy of cycling. The full program and more information about Cycassel can be found at www.cycassel.org
