You want to learn how to ride a bike? Come to our training sessions!
Anyone who wants to learn to ride a bike or just needs some practice is welcome at our open training for women*. The training is open for women* of all ages. We will help you to be able to ride a bike in your everyday life. The open training is free of charge. We’re looking forward to seeing you!
After some balance exercises we will help you onto the bike, show you how everything works and support you. First you will learn how to safely get on, ride straight ahead and get off again. When you have mastered this, you can practice turning, riding one-handed, shoulder vision and recognizing important traffic signs. You can practice with us as many times as you want until you feel ready for the road!
We’re also happy to help you obtain a bike for yourself afterwards and get to know your everyday routes so you can do them safely on your own. If you have any further questions or problems, you can always contact us.
Bikes and helmets are available for free during practice. You can also bring your kids (and their favorite toys) and we’ll watch them while you practice.

You love to ride your bike? For some Leipzigers - especially women with a history of migration - that doesn't come naturally. Pass on your skills to others!
This is empowerment from woman* to woman* and creates a moment of encounter with usually lots of laughter. In our free bike training, you help adjust saddles, support, maybe explain basic traffic rules and, most importantly, give encouragement.
Lila Lenker is a volunteer project - we welcome your commitment!
As a low-barrier term, we use the term woman, but we want to address and invite everyone who sees themselves as female, non-binary, queer, trans, intersex or agender!
The training takes place at your own risk. No liability is taken over for possible injuries or damages.
