The Shimano Cycling Concept Award is an annual contest to promote cycling in Europe, being organized for the seventh consecutive year. Experience shows that there are a lot of good ideas among bicycle enthusiasts that just need an extra financial impulse to become reality.
This years contest is aiming at stimulating bike usage at schools, especially in the important age group of 5-16 years old. It is of utmost importance to teach this generation that cycling can be a useful, environmental friendly and healthy alternative to other modes of transportation. More use of the bicycle can contribute to solving a lot of problems (traffic congestion, polution, overweight and so on) and it offers also a lot of pleasure!
