VeloCity – The Power of Berlin

This year, colleagues from nexnet also rode through the streets of Berlin under this motto.

The famous cycling race took place on 03 July 2022 in Berlin. With almost 12,000 participants, VeloCity is one of the largest cycling events in Berlin. On a route of 60 or 90 kilometers cycling enthusiasts could prove their skills. Of course, our hard-working cyclists from nexnet wanted to be there as well. As a Berlin-based company, the city is very close to our hearts. We are also enthusiastic about sporting events.

The route for the VeloCity

led this year past many famous sights of Berlin. Starting at the Brandenburg Gate, the participants went to the Victory Column and then on to Spandau. A highlight of the route was the spectacular Havelchaussee, where the cyclists rode along the Havel in perfect weather. The tour also went towards the Free University of Berlin, Botanical Garden and Steglitz Town Hall. Along the course, many spectators cheered on the athletes. The good weather created a good mood among cyclists and visitors alike.

There were even more highlights for the participants*. Because the route led along the border crossing Checkpoint Charlie to the TV tower and further in the direction of Friedrichstadt-Palast. The cyclists then rode along the Spree back to the Victory Column and the Brandenburg Gate.

Once again, the event inspired hundreds of people to get moving and be a part of this great event. Our colleagues from nexnet were there, of course, and showed what they could do on their bikes.

Fun Fact: We at nexnet not only support the sporting enthusiasm of our colleagues by paying the participation fee, but also sponsored jerseys in the design of our recently launched

Conclusion about the VeloCity

This cycling event offers a great route through Berlin, great atmosphere among the spectators and participants and it strengthens the team spirit.

For us it was also a successful event from a sporting point of view, because the participants crossed the finish line with great times. “At the end, everyone who made it to the finish line received a well-deserved medal. For me it was the first bike race, but I plan to be back next year, possibly even to ride the 90 km loop,” says Stefan Zerjatke.

Christian Kunert also says, “Next year we’ll be happy to participate in VeloCity again.”
