Plan International Challenge – the charity ride for children's rights at the Deutschland Tour

March, 31th - 2021

Everyone can ride the Deutschland Tour? This is now possible thanks to a new fundraising campaign that was developed together with the children's aid organization Plan International. On each of the race’s four stages, 10 teams of two riders bike just ahead of the elite peloton to collect donations for a project against child labor in Tanzania. According to the motto “Your stage for children's rights”, the participants ride the entire route from the stage’s start city, making it over the official finish line in time before the pro riders arrive. Registration for the limited spots in the fundraising campaign is now open:

As in the previous edition, the Deutschland Tour will again campaign for children's rights in 2021. Plan International is the official charity partner of Germany's largest cycling festival. The goal: children should have the same rights and opportunities worldwide so that they can grow up healthy and actively shape their future.
