After the overwhelming success of our participation in the Academic Bicycle Challenge in June – 142,428 kilometres travelled together by a total of 634 registered participants from MLU – we are pleased to announce another exciting cycling campaign: the “Stadtradeln”!
This year, for the first time, MLU is providing a team for which you can register as an individual or as a sub-team. For 21 days, starting on 4 September 2023, the aim is to cover as many everyday journeys as possible by bicycle.
Cycling is excellent for body and mind. It is good for the muscles and lungs, it helps against physical ailments and defects. Cycling is suitable for most people. There are many good reasons to get on a bike. In June, there is one more – MLU is taking part in the Academic Bicycle Challenge again in 2023! Attractive prizes will be awarded at the Long Night of Science on 7 July.
During our health theme weeks in June and July this year, various relaxation courses also took place. To give you the opportunity to set up a relaxation time independent of the time and place of the courses, we have recorded the relaxation sessions and posted them on our blog.
