Contargo gets on its Bicycle 2017: A new record

Now the winners of this year’s competition for employees can be announced – and once again, the previous year’s records have been broken.

Congratulations to all the winners, and many thanks to all participants!

This year’s winning team is Contargo Industriepark Höchst GmbH.

The team clocked up a total of 6570 km, saving 985 kg/CO2 and 254€.

The best solo cyclist also came from the location Contargo Industriepark Frankfurt-Höchst:

Our colleague Sascha Meyer cycled 60 km every day, totalling exactly 3600 km in 12 weeks. This represents savings of 540 kg/CO2 – equivalent to the carbon footprint of two barges sailing between Rotterdam and Frankfurt Industriepark Höchst (once there and back, 271 kg/CO2 per barge)

This year from 26 June to 15 September 2017 the whole of Contargo joined in, cycling 21,204 km altogether and saving a total of 3125 kg/CO2 compared to driving the same distance by car. We also burned calories equivalent to more than 1,000 chocolate bars (a 100g bar of milk chocolate contains 535 kcal).

In 2016 we cycled “only” 16,023 km.

2nd Place: Contargo Neuss GmbH with 6,140 km

3rd Place: Contargo Rhein-Main GmbH Standort Frankfurt-Ost with 2,981 km


Top solo performers:

2nd Place: Andreas Buchholz - Contargo Industriepark Höchst GmbH with 2,184 km

3rd Place: Gerhard Kessler - Contargo Rhein-Neckar GmbH with 1,254 km


The winners’ cycle trip for Frankfurt-Höchst will take place in spring 2018. We’re looking forward to it already!
