LEARNING HOW TO RIDE A BICYCLE (4 HALF-DAY WORKSHOP) + TOUR THE WEEKEND AFTERWARDS

“There was never any more inception than there is now.” Walt Whitman once said. In case you always were eager to ride a bike but lacked both a bike and the skills your time has now come.  This workshop will be professionally handled and done in a protected training area together with a driving teacher, a paramedic and a bike for each of you to take home afterwards. As it takes more time for grown-ups to learn to balance properly, we are planning teaching sessions on 4 mornings 9 a.m. to 12 noon. So if you are interested please make sure to have this time capacity, as the “Verkehrsübungsplatz” is located a bit outside of the city center and you’ll need some time to get there. You will definitely ride a bike afterwards!

Also your partners are welcome, we try to find many volunteers to help you keeping the balance, so there will be lots of people involved. There will be a fee of 25 € which will cover a fixed bike for you to take home.

To show off your new gained skills we invite you to join our city bike tour on Saturday or Sunday, 5 or 6 Nov (depends on the weather), where we’ll guide you around the town and train your new biking skill in the city traffic.

Please register via e-mail to welcome.center@tu-dresden.de giving your full name, your position (PhD, PostDoc, partner of whom), the affiliated research institute, your body lengths in centimeter for a suitable bike.

Where: Verkehrsübrungsplatz Dresden, Mügelner Straße 29, 01237 Dresden
When: 1-4 November 2016, 9 a.m. – 12 a.m. (You will need to attend each day) // Bike Tour through the city center of Dresden 5 or 6 November (due to weather)
Fee: 25 € to be paid at the TUD Welcome Center while opening hours until the end of October
