CYCLING FOR CHILDREN is a unique public cycling event organised in Switzerland around the Greifensee. Instead of being a cycle race, the aim is to show commitment and support for children in need through sporting performance and creative fundraising. Everyone sets their own targets. No distance is too great to save a child’s life!

What to expect on the day

Imagine a better world for children. A world where every child has enough to eat, has access to clean drinking water and to health care. That is what you’ll be cycling around the lake for. Maybe once, maybe several times. Your sporting efforts will be cheered on by a multitude of onlookers. There will be music, refreshments and massages. If you need to take a breather at some point, you’ll even find sun loungers along the route.

The Cycling for Children Village is situated at the Uster lido and marks the start and finish line. There are plenty of attractions for children and adults. A wide range of food stands and musical entertainment will provide support and ensure the right atmosphere. You can hire and test bikes or enjoy a relaxing massage after your cycle tour. There are special attractions for children, making the event a wonderful day out for the whole family.

In the afternoon, the total amount of funds raised will be announced and the best fundraising teams and riders will be honoured.

A challenge for everyone

Be it beginner, ambitious hobby cyclist or professional athlete – each participant sets their own goal. From 8.00 in the morning to 16.00 in the afternoon, you can ride the wonderful, almost 20 km route around the Greifensee as often as you like.

Our shared goal is to circle the world in 8 hours: 40,000 km for a better world for children.
