Donate an old bike and do some good: in partnership with the RADGEBER campaign, star is helping to collect used bikes for people in need.
Elmshorn, 6th August 2018 – star petrol stations don’t just welcome motorists, but cyclists too. As part of its sponsorship of EuroEyes Cyclassics Hamburg, one of the biggest cycle races in Europe, the petrol station chain is supporting the RADGEBER donation campaign, a joint initiative of sporting hamburg and EuroEyes Cyclassics. For one week, the star petrol station at Baumeisterstrasse 4 in St Georg will act as a collection point for used but still useable bikes, which will then be passed onto people without bicycles.
Hamburg hopes to become a cycling city, but there are plenty of Hamburg residents who cannot afford a bike. This lack of mobility and reduced quality of life also means many children do not learn how to ride a bike properly. Not least because of this, many federal road safety organisations lament the fact that increasing numbers of schoolchildren are not equipped to deal with traffic. *
On the other hand, many Hamburg residents have an old bike in the basement or garage. Now there’s the opportunity to declutter at home and do some good in the process. The RADGEBER campaign has made it its aim to supply people who cannot afford a bike with used but still useable bikes. While the campaign will peak at EuroEyes Cyclassics on 19th August 2018, the centrally located star petrol station at Baumeisterstrasse 4 in St Georg will be facilitating the drop-off of unwanted bicycles from 12th to 18th August 2018 under the motto ‘Donate bicycles with star’. Bikes can be donated from 5am to midnight from Monday to Friday, and at any time on Saturday and Sunday.
There’s a ‘thank you’ surprise waiting at star
Alongside the feel-good vibes, every person handing in an old bike at EuroEyes Cyclassics or the star petrol station will receive a small ‘thank you’ gift. During EuroEyes Cyclassics on 19th August, unused bicycles will be accepted on the Reesendammbrücke on Jungfernstieg between 10am and 4pm. In addition to star, partners of the RADGEBER Initiative from sporting hamburg are EuroEyes Cyclassics, Hanseatic Help, and Westwind Hamburg e.V.
The campaign is taking place as part of EuroEyes Cyclassics, one of the biggest cycle races in Europe for professionals and amateurs, which will lead through the Elbe metropolitan area and Schleswig-Holstein on 19th August 2018. As a supporter of environmentally friendly endurance and family sports, star is the main sponsor for the third time as well as being the ‘official fill-up partner’ of the event. Around 18,000 participants and 650,000 spectators are expected at the event.
