On September 16th in 2018 a big bike rally took place in Riemer Park in the east of Munich. About 600 children and teenagers between the ages of four and 14 years and their families participated. In total there were 17 stations to explore under the motto "discovering the world".

On a barefoot path the children had to get safely over rough and smooth or supported the local fire brigade in their fight between fire and water. The young cyclists travelled to the desert and had to supply themselves with water before they could climb the mountains on their bikes. They overcame the lake with canoes and participated in a funny wrestling with sumo costumes.

They also learned a lot interesting facts about cycling, traffic rules and trained their balance on the bike through skill exercises.

The response to the evaluation postcard that was handed out to the participants during the event was quite good and many asked for the event to take place again. A short video clip can be found here: (German).
