The second community ride as part of the "European Peace Ride" project is dedicated to the culture of remembrance in Bad Ischl. The focus is not on sporting performance, but on history.

The meeting point is the Trinkhalle Bad Ischl, where the historical cycle tour starts with historian Kurt Lux along the historical pins. He provided historical advice for the project “Pins of Remembrance – Bad Ischl’s Culture of Remembrance” and is one of the initiators.
The “Culture of Remembrance in Bad Ischl” project is concerned with the fact that there is almost no evidence of a culture of remembrance in the public space in relation to the National Socialist era – although there is plenty of history worth remembering in this regard, with many Jewish residents and guests of the region affected by Nazi persecution, as well as the well-known resistance activities in the Salzkammergut.
No special physical condition is required for the tour. We recommend wearing a cycle helmet and weatherproof clothing to take part in the historical tour. The ride will not take place if it rains.

European Peace Ride

The Peace Ride is not a competition, but instead an encounter and exchange on an international level. The International Peace Ride was the most highly regarded amateur cycling event behind the Iron Curtain. The European Capital of Culture Chemnitz 2025 brings the peace ride back to life as a bicycle culture event.
