Biodiversity scientists cycle for variety

On the first of May the semi classic cycling race “Rund um den Henninger Turm” takes place for the 48th time in and around Frankfurt am Main, this year under the new name “Eschborn-Frankfurt City Loop”. As every year alongside professional cyclists amateur athletes can also participate in the race. They can choose between three race distances: 42, 74 or 103 km, two of them running pretty much even, while one reach up to the heights of the Taunus Mountains.
On start as well is a highly motivated five-person team of BiK-F, consisting of Ph.D. students as well as professors. Numerous staff members of the Biodiversity and Climate Research Center set a good example everyday and cycle to work, instead of bringing forward climate change by driving a car. Therefore, they regarded it as a matter of course to start at this classic challenge for the new research center. The BiK-F cyclists will tackle several race distances.  So diversity is taken care of!
