Cycling for the community: stoba is committed to the climate and children

This month, some employees at stoba pedaled hard – and all for a good cause! Two cycling highlights took place in June and July: city cycling and the Tour Ginkgo.

From June 15 to July 5, 21 stoba employees cycled in three teams for our locations in Backnang, Weinstadt and Memmingen. Together they covered an impressive 5,550 kilometers. That’s an impressive 264 kilometers per person in just 21 days! We are extremely proud of our dedicated cyclists and their valuable contribution to promoting cycling, protecting the climate and improving the quality of life in our communities.

For eleven years now, we have been a partner of Tour Ginkgo, which collects donations for seriously ill children every year through a bicycle tour in southern Germany. Together with other companies and committed partners, our CEO Christoph Bode therefore took to the pedals on behalf of stoba and cycled through the picturesque landscapes of the Black Forest-Baar district. This year’s goal: to collect donations for the Katharinenhöhe rehabilitation clinic in Schönwald in the Black Forest.


The route led through numerous idyllic communities, where the cyclists were welcomed with great warmth and enthusiasm by the supporters each time.

As a result,an impressive (provisional) donation total of 210,961.67 euros was raised! The Tour Ginkgo was therefore also a complete success and we are delighted that we were able to contribute to this fantastic donation result.
