The Bicycle Festival

Exactly 200 years ago, Karl von Drais presented his invention, the “Draisine” or “running machine”, to the people of Mannheim: He went on a maiden journey to the electoral summer residence in Schwetzingen  and therewith laid the foundation for independent mobility. He did not know he created one of the most beautiful and important presents for humankind. But we know today and will duly celebrate it with bike parades that will roll through the streets and bicycle performers who will show off their skills. Around the water tower we’ll watch the recumbent world cup, a folding bike race and – of course – the original hobby-horse race!
