Numerous children and their parents demonstrated this weekend at around a dozen bicycle demos in Berlin alone for more child-friendly city traffic.

At the nationwide "Kidical Mass Action Weekend", "thousands of children and parents demanded that children be able to move freely, carefree and safely on their bikes," said several Berlin transport associations such as the ADFC and the Verkehrsclub (VCD).

On Saturday morning, the young participants handed over a petition with more than 84,000 signatures to Berlin's Senator for Transport, Bettina Jarasch (Green Party).

The first children's bicycle demonstration started on Saturday morning through Friedrichshain.

Further rallies are planned for the afternoon and Sunday in the other districts and cities.
