ONE-ON-ONE biCYCLE TRAINING IN bERLIN, germany

Bike riding lessons for adults in convenient places in Berlin-Mitte




Are you an absolute beginner? Do you want to learn how to ride a bike from scratch?

 (LEVEL I)

 We offer individual one-on-one training sessions for adults who have not yet learned to ride a bicycle. During our sessions, students learn cycling in a calm environment, step by step, at their own speed. Students begin with riding scooters/kick bikes and gradually progress to a full-sized bicycle once they have developed their sense of balance. Lessons are structured with various fun and pleasant exercises to help to the student learn to ride safely and confidently.

Kick bikes and bicycles for the student are provided.

 

Are you able to ride a bike all ready, but feel that your technical skills may be lacking? (LEVEL II)

 We also offer lessons for students who would like to brush-up on the fundamental technical aspects of bicycle riding. Students work on skill-building exercises to practice taking difficult turns, braking appropriately, looking in the opposite direction, riding one-handed, developing kinesthetic awareness, and more.

 Students may borrow a bike or provide their own.

 

Do you feel safe on a bicycle but worry about cycling in the city streets because of the traffic? (LEVEL III)

 Lessons will focus on safe road behavior and begin with an introduction to German traffic rules for cyclists. Students will also continue to perfect and polish their cycling technique. When the student is ready, they will begin to ride in the streets of Berlin alongside the instructor and learn to avoid the risks of urban cycling and handle difficult real-life situations as they occur.

Students at this level should provide their own bicycle.

About me:

I have been a "moveo·ergo·sum" licensed cycling instructor since 2013. I have taught students of all levels and 38 different nationalities how to ride a bicycle.

 

I am an active member of the German General Cycling-Club (ADFC) and a member of the “moveo ergo sum” Association of Bicycle Instructors (VdR - Verband der Radfahrlehrer e.V.)

 

moveo-ergo-sum

is a method which was developed by Christian Burmeister, pioneer in terms of cycling courses in Germany. It is based on a comprehensive concept that is founded psychologically, didactically as well as on sports science.
