“Rund um Köln“ – classics cycling at the river Rhine 2020: Well-tried with a new organiser!

The traditional cycling race “Rund um Köln“ will again take place this year in familiar constellation, as a mixture of elite and hobby races: Besides the elite race there will be the two ŠKODA Velodom 70 and ŠKODA Velodom 125 recreational races.

All competitions will be started in Cologne’s Rheinauhafen, afterwards the course will lead through mountainous Bergisches Land, with long straights, shorts ascents and of course the legendardy cobblestone passage to Bensberg Castle! The hobby riders will mostly cycle on the course of the pros. And the spectacular finish will again be in the Rhine metropolis of Cologne.

The organizer will be new: The Cologne Marathon organising company, Köln Marathon Veranstaltungs- und Werbe GmbH, will follow Verein Cölner Straßenfahrer (VCS) and bring the event to a next and professional level.
