Rund um Köln cycle race

A somewhat different Easter event is taking place in Cologne on Easter Monday. On 9 April 2012, the classic Rund um Köln cycle race is being held for the 96th time in the cathedral city. Professional cyclists battle it out over a 200km course through the Bergisches Land region, and the area around the finishing line at the Rheinauhafen docklands in Cologne is completely given over to cycling for the event. What with amateur races, the Rund um Köln challenge and the cycling trade fair, there is plenty here to appeal to cycling enthusiasts.
