From September 10th on, Climate Alliance Luxembourg and Verkéiersverbond are organising the TOUR du DUERF cycling campaign for the seventh time, and Natur- & Geopark Mëllerdall is taking part again!
The declared aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of daily use of the bicycle and to give it a more important role in everyday life. In particular, the members of the local council and advisory committees are called upon to find out about the reality of cycling and then of course implement measures to improve the situation in their municipality. The members of the local council and advisory commissions cycle in teams, together with the other residents of the municipality. The aim is to collect as many bicycle kilometres as possible over a period of three weeks, whether during working or leisure time, in teams or individually. Everyone is welcome to participate and form teams: school classes, associations, organisations, companies, etc.
Each participant enters his or her kilometres in the online cycling calendar at www.tourduduerf.eu. The best teams are rewarded by the municipality, while the organisers Verkéiersverbond and Klima-Bündnis Lëtzebuerg reward the most active municipalities.
Who can participate?
– The members of the municipal council and the advisory committees;
– All residents;
– All people who work in the municipality, belong to an association or attend school there.
How can I participate?
On www.tourduduerf.lu you can either join an existing team or create a new one. From September 10th onwards, all you have to do is use your bike as often as possible and enter the kilometres you have covered. Participants without internet access report the kilometres they have cycled to their team captain, who enters them online on their behalf. We trust in the honesty of the participants!
