19 min.DK/Documentary

Sonja has never learned the art of bicycling. Now is the time. For her 60th birthday Russian-born Sonja receives a bicycle and must now make acquaintance with terra incognita. Sonja gets on well during her first practice, but she is terribly dangerous in the streets. She is unable to manoeuvre the bicycle properly, and even though she is familiar with traffic rules they are difficult to practice on a cycle out in the real world. Consequently, Sonja decides to join a bicycling course for women. "Sonja Learns to Ride a Bike" describes the learning process and depicts Sonja on her path to become a confident cyclist.
