Who is biking the most kilometres: our scientists, technical employees or employees from our central divisions? Compete worldwide and at our own institute. Participate in the Academic Bicycle Challenge - in June 2022 here at the MPI!

The Academic Bicycle Challenge (ABC) combines joyful cycling, healthy exercise, and climate protection. The common goal: collecting as many cycled miles as possible.

The ABC is the new international Cycling Contest for universities, colleges and scientific institutes. The ABC looks for academic institutes with the most active cyclists on the road in the world.
