Did you know Münster is called the cycling capital of Europe?
Cyclists in York and Münster are making links…
Four York cyclists travelled by bike to our twin city in Germany, Münster, over four days, covering c 60-70 miles per day. They set off on 30 June 2022, from the Knavesmire, with Councillor Andy D'Agorne, City of York Council's Executive Member for Transport, to see them off and wish them well. Another group of York folk went by train to join them in Münster.
On arrival in Münster, all York delegates were welcomed by Münster hosts and stayed with them for the next few days. A programme of events included a reception with the Mayor in the beautiful Rathaus (the town hall), a city tour, and a guided tour of Münster’s fantastic cycle infrastructure.
We are indebted to our wonderful hosts - now friends - from the city of Münster. The York guests had a great few days exploring the Münsterland region and coming together with the Münster people after such a long wait.
On the final evening, everyone met in the old barracks of the British regiment in Münster, where they put on a feast to bid the visitors farewell. "Bis bald, Münster!" May this be the first of many visits!
