Cycling Saxony e.V. is the interest association of the Saxon bicycle industry. The aim of the association is the targeted bundling of experience and know-how to support the companies, associations and research institutions in the areas of trade, industry, commerce, tourism, culture, sports, research and other services of the bicycle industry that are united in the association. The vision pursued by the association is to develop the cycling state of Saxony into one of the most important cycling business locations worldwide.


We advise business, science, politics and public institutions on cycling-related topics and issues. Whether strategy, marketing, sales, purchasing, recruiting or production – we are your right contact. Together we will find the right solution.

We network the players in the Saxon bicycle industry with each other. In addition, we establish contacts with potential partners, suppliers, service providers and customers in Germany and abroad. We actively develop and shape the ecosystem of Saxony as a cycling state.

We represent the interests of the Saxon bicycle industry in all its diversity to politicians and the interested public. Our goal is to establish Saxony as one of the world’s strongest bicycle industry locations.


The association is managed by an honorary board consisting of representatives of the member companies. The board is elected by the general meeting.
