2013 European Cycle Messenger Championship: Switzerland

Welcome to Bern, welcome to the Lorraine neighbourhood, welcome at Velokurier Bern!

This year the cooperative Velokurier Bern is celebrating its 25th year in business. We invite you to celebrate with us a quarter of a century of cycle messenger history and city history. Let‘s take this anniversary as an occasion to invite cycle messengers from throughout the world to join us in Berne and to organize a wonderful messenger event in the midst of the city: The European Cycle Messenger Championship 2013!

We promise a four-day bicycle party with international charisma and local roots. Working together closely with the local committee "Läbigi Lorraine" we are set to create a lively and diversified program for everyone. The „ Velokurier Bern“ anniversary party will be the event’s musical and cultural highlight.

After Madrid 2011 and Edinburgh 2012 the European championship take place for the 18th time. The most prestigious event will be the Main-Race in which a typical cycle messenger’s day is simulated. Over 200 international competitors will receive a race manifest containing a multitude of different assignments. Letters, parcels and bulky objects need to be picked up at checkpoints and transported to others. The goal in this race, which can easily take hours, is to combine the different assignments cleverly and, by doing so, completing them as fast as possible. For this, a tactically and physically challenging course is planned in the neighbourhood, demanding full effort of the competitors. On the race day the Lorraine neighbourhood will be closed to traffic.
