Four-year-old cyclist enters India Book of Records covering 1.5 km in 10 minutes
Kozhikode: Aadhav SR, a four-year-old boy from Kuytheri here has made his way to the India Book of Records by covering 1.5 kilometres on his bicycle. He achieved the record after crossing a distance of 1.5 kilometres within 10 minutes and 20 seconds.
This little cyclist is the son of R Sreeraj, headmaster at Kuytheri MLP School and Sreethu, a teacher at Vellur MLP School.
Interestingly, Aadhav learned cycling at the age of 3 years when his father gifted a new bicycle to him.
“I observed that he got some special skill in cycling. So, I removed the extra tyres which was attached for safety. Later, Aadhav started to travel in the cycle to all places. During the lockdown, I allowed him to take a ride on the road as vehicles were not plying. Following this, he started to spend his time on cycling without showing any interest to watch TV or play any games. Amidst this, I came to know about the Indian Book of Records,” said Aadhav’s father.
“A month ago, I permitted him to take a ride on the road and recorded the video after following him in my car. He covered 1.5 kilometres in 10 minutes and 20 seconds without stopping anywhere. A waterlogged road interrupted his ride midway,” added his father.
Officials from India Book of Records honoured the boy with a medal and certificate.
