Cyclists from one of York’s twin towns, Münster, Germany, will soon arrive by bike to see their friends.

Cyclists from one of York’s twin towns, Münster, Germany, will soon arrive by bike to see their friends. Last year a team cycled from York to Münster, to look at the cycling provision there, and are now repaying hospitality to the friends they made. 

The cyclists aim to be at Millennium Bridge this Friday 9th June, with an ETA early afternoon. They will be welcomed by their hosts and by York Münster Twinning Association, for a full weekend exploring the city. 

Their trip coincides with York Musical Society singing alongside their partner choir from Münster, on Saturday 10th June in York Minster, marking 30 years of friendship.
