what a busy, fast-growing year we had.
We were able to set up and steady new training facilities successfully.
From Hohenschönhausen with free cycling training for advanced participants in the heart of Berlin, to the Wall Trail in Lichtenrade.
We also conquered the Brandenburg state. We have had always a large influx of people from the surrounding area, which was not a surprise due to the lack of public transportation and the fact that some of the accommodations are absolutely isolated. And so we set out on # CO2neutral, mostly with folding bikes and the train. Here we can proudly refer to an enormous range, too: from Doberlug-Kirchhain via Wünsdorf as far as Prenzlau. And everywhere we were welcome with great enthusiasm and open arms. Awesome.
Thanks, especially to you at this point. In spite of subsidies, there remain large sums of own contribution and items that are not taken over by any institution. Keyword e.g. Rental fee.
We couldn’t have done it without you.
In total, we conducted trainings at 13 different locations. In the different versions: multi-part, self-contained cycle, fortnightly training and continuous weekly training.
Our first training day in Brandenburg is on January 8, 2020, the open training takes place on January 19 in Kreuzberg.
Because neither cold, rain nor heat could stop the women from learning to ride a bike.
By absolute numbers, we can say for 2019 alone, that we have completed 135 (!!) training sessions, have put over 300 women/ girls on the bike and, in addition, over 60 were equipped with an own bike set (bike, helmet, lock and light/ bag).
Only related to training sessions, that’s almost double what we’ve been able to do almost exclusively in volunteer work in the previous years. Wow.
We can therefore safely say that we have kept our promise: we will quickly create visible, sustainable results with maximum efficiency!
And we also organized many events: bike trips, cooking and baking events, info stands, lectures, demo participations, game evenings, etc. .
Fortunately, a number of tandems have found each other that meet by themselves, and implement our idea: to create encounters between people in real life and to show that a colorful togetherness is a social enrichment for everyone.
Kind regards from the whole team #BIKEYGEES ????♀️????
