In 2016 employees of Zedler-Group took again part in the cycle tours Sachsenheimer Lichtenstern-Tour and Ludwigsburger Barock-Rundfahrt (RTF) together with business partners, families and friends of the company. Even persistent rain and temperatures just above 10 degrees Celsius could not keep participants from riding 40 to 208 kilometres. The all in all 46 participants collected 4,922 km on both Sundays and earned 30 cents per kilometre that will be donated, just like in the previous years, to World Bicycle Relief.
With this donation the project will be able to buy 11 new, solid Buffalo bicycles and a whole lot of accessories for Africa. Furthermore, the Zedler team won the cup for the largest group for the sixth time in a row at RTF in Ludwigsburg.
Managing director Dirk Zedler: "We are happy to have earned bicycles for Africa this year again that will allow more than 50 Africans to travel to work or to start a training and thereby improve their lives a little."
