We won the German Bike Prize! It was awarded to us on the 22nd of February at a festive gathering at the Congress Center in Essen.
The German Bike Prize is awarded every year to those initiatives that focus on and actively support cycling as a way of transportation, with the aim of promoting these projects among stakeholders and decision makers.
Our project was selected out of 57 submissions received nationwide for the Service category.
“#BIKEYGEES e.V. impressively shows how you can achieve great results even with simple means” the eulogy states. This is an amazing acknowledgment for us, which we are very much proud of, also considering that we still do not receive any regular support and that we mainly rely on donations to finance our initiative.
We want to thank all who supported us so far! Thanks to many helping hearts, heads and hands, we were able to teach cycling to more than 500 women in 70 training sessions and recently handed over the 100th bike set.
