RoofKIT Tour de Solar

How do we bring our cargo bike from our sponsor Lastenvelo in Freiburg to the Solar Campus of the SDE in Wuppertal? With a bike ride, of course!

In bright sunshine, we started in Freiburg on the blue bridge known from Netflix. We continued past the New Town Hall with its solar façade through the vineyards of the Kaiserstuhl to Breisach and then to the Rhine. Strengthened with a cold ice cream, we continued north. Near Kappel we took the ferry to Rhinau. On the Alsatian side of the Rhine we continued along the Canal du Rhône au Rhin to Strasbourg. Under the cathedral we finished the stage after 106 km.

For the second section we continued early in the morning again. Battery changed and with new strength through small villages, meadows and forests in the direction of Karlsruhe. When crossing the river Sauer we saw for the first time the expected sign: Karlsruhe 25 km! So we cycled a bit further and finally finished the stage in front of the castle. Just in time before a thunderstorm we had made it to our destination.
