Promoting our employees' health is important to us. Last year, we implemented a quite new idea: The business bike! This increasingly popular opportunity to obtain a high-quality bicycle or e-bike by salary sacrifice through leasing has been taken by 35 employees so far. This model can also be used by the (married) partner. This is how 50 "VETTER business bikes" are meanwhile on the road.
On 09 September, some of the cyclists met at our site in Eiserfeld to do a cycling tour through the Siegerland region. Certainly, the bad weather prevented some employees from attending but the hard core resisted the capricious weather and pedalled hard on the popular hills of the Rothaar Mountains since cycling tours in the Siegerland region make you sweat even if you are using an e-bike. The distance of 44.6 km covered 714 metres in height. The panoramic view from the hill Tiefenrother Höhe (552.3 m above the sea level) was dramatic – heavy rainclouds drifted menacingly across the sky but they did not force the cyclists to give up.
The managing director of the VETTER Holding GmbH, Klaus Th. Vetter, was not impressed by wind and weather either and participated in the tour. Special highlight: His wife Heidi provided the cyclists with drinks, delicious cake, and healthy fruit during a break halfway.
All participants agree that this event needs to be repeated! The next tour is already at the planning stage. And if you are interested in cycling holidays in the Siegerland region, we would be pleased to give you some tips for your tour.
