How do you flex words ending with minen?
Example ajaminen, hiihtäminen.
I can't find them in wiktionary.

They are inflected just like other words ending in -(i)nen: the stem is -nen in the nominative singular, but -s(e)- in all other case forms.

Thus:

singular
ajamisen (accusative/genitive)
ajamista (partitive)
ajamisessa (inessive)
ajamiseen (illative)
etc.

plural
ajamiset (nom./acc.)
ajamisia (partitive)
ajamisten (gen.)
ajamisissa (inessive)
ajamisiin (illative)
etc.

Verbal nouns ending in -minen rarely appear in the plural, but I included the plural forms just to show the larger pattern.
