BICYCLE.CULTURE.PURE.

CYCLE WEEK - the biggest bicycle festival in Switzerland

From August 4 - 8, Zurich is under the sign of the bike. The Urban Bike Festival and the Bike Days unite to form the CYCLE WEEK, the largest bicycle festival in Switzerland - decentralized, live, online and corona-compliant. The CYCLE WEEK focuses on bike culture for sport, leisure and mobility. In the Europaallee, there will be a big expo, city and cargo bikes with and without motor will be ready for you to test or you can put yourself to the test in the safety course. The Brunau, where city and nature meet, is the ideal place to experience the fascination of bicycles and to test everything that has two wheels and pedals: from full-suspension mountain bikes to spartan gravel bikes, from smart e-bikes to practical cargo bikes and from children's bikes to racing bikes. In the Europaallee and in the Brunau, exhibitors will present the latest products, trips, offers and everything else that moves the world of cycling. The program also includes the CYCLE WEEK CHANNEL with talks, presentations and contributions, as well as workshops, rides and contests. Finally we can meet again, exchange ideas and celebrate the bike!

Mountain Bike Talk
The summer of 2020 was the most successful since mountain bikes have existed as a leisure product and tourist offer. But the triumphal procession began long before that. With it, conflicts on trails increased and the environmental compatibility of this actually gentle sport was questioned. What does sustainable mountain bike tourism look like? How do hikers and mountain bikers find their space? SRF presenter Stefan Flury looks for solutions with experts from different camps.

Mobility Talk
The bicycle relieves cities and agglomerations. It takes up little space and causes neither noise nor CO2. But cycling in urban traffic is still dangerous and discourages many. What does it take to make cycling the transport mode of choice for children and senior citizens, the inexperienced and commuters? How do infrastructures and rules need to be changed so that cycling can fulfil its potential and improve the quality of life in cities? Journalist Peter Röthlisberger welcomes experts and stakeholders to the Mobility Forum
