Hi friends


"For a change...No traffic restriction, open access at Venkatappa Art Gallery gate !!
Thank Goodness for small mercies 😄"

Trainers: Naga Prakash, Ali
Volunteer : Sadiq

Newbies : 4
"Adhira : Younger sister of Akshara, has been pillion rider for Shraddha of Katraj gang...
accepted the challange and started to learn on the foldie, even though barely managed to reach the pedals with toes !! *"
"Neelima : Dhanvin's mom, got the courage and sat on the scooting bike on her own initiative 
and managed to glide few meters with both feet up...
will be soon on to pedalling by the looks of her composure."
"Arjith : came with mom and dad with his own cycle,
 was very attentive to the safety instructions and started scooting with help of Praveen, his dad. 
With age on his side and a cool bike, this kid is going to be zooming around soon !"
"Joy : This is Joy's first class. He was very enthusiastic to learn. started off with scooting 
and he got to it in 30mins. Later started to train him pedaling and with in no time he was able pedal. 
It's a great progress and he was very happy about pedaling on own. "
Seniors: 7
Sandeep : was the star of the day..! came to the session not to learn but inspire and teach ! He now rides 'hands free' ! and he showed his special skill without any mishap .. Ali, inspired as well as 'J' tried and failed miserably 😄
Gunjan : Coming after couple of months gap, this very sporting young girl re capped scooting and was Pedalling soon. Lurching is an issue and needs to be regular 
Vishakha : More as a company to her friend Gunjan, she being a more confident rider, helped Gunjan to ride better.
"Danvin : turned up with mom Neelima who started today, 
while Dhanvin, zooming around at great speed otherwise,  
attempted to do circle, but the handle bar control needs to be better."
Nagesh- much improved with good pedalling and braking rhythm, moved on to doing circles. 
Shankar : Now reaching status of a veteran, rode the new bike given by Swagata a month ago, 
Sridhar : As usual Sridhar came for more practice. Me and Ali gave inputs on safe start and stop. He kept practicing.

Till next weekend 

Keep Pedalling !
