Learning to ride #whatdoyousee!

Does this picture inspires you to write something?

Yeah! It does! Here’s my take on the prompt:-

Wikipedia defines bicycle as a single-track vehicle with two wheels attached to a frame, one behind the other. I was also always behind my brother, coping with teeny weeny challenges while he mentored me in cycling. He usually was better at grasping everything — advanced or mundane — while I was a laggard and a little gullible too.

When he learned to ride, his example sparked my desire to learn. So began my learning to the balance between the wheels. It was not long before my brother was handholding me during a dedicated daily schedule while I attempted various maneuvers.

I was his project and he worked me hard in the days that followed. Scorching my juvenile skin under the cacophony sun, barging into dead-ends, and colliding head on! He ran alongside me, straining his back and holding the handle to keep me upright as I slowly gained momentum on my unisex bike which had a carrier, flashing headlight, scarlet chassis, and flashy stickers.

I never auditioned with training wheels, nevertheless managed well with pedaling, soon balancing and cycling with ease. Initially it felt weird forge ahead fast in untamed lanes but eventually I caught the spirit of self-transportation and the wind in the hair.

From wandering to staying focused, getting scratches to healing scabs, driving alone to double-seating, I did it all. My brother was relieved when I became a Miss Cycling Know-It-All. Ours was never a sibling rivalry, it was always sibling reverie and I cherish the hand holdings.
