What's big, gray, has two wheels, and goes "ding-ding"?
An elephant on a new bike :-).

Americans use their bicycles for less than one percent of all urban trips. Europeans bike in cities a lot more often—in Italy 5 percent of all trips are on bicycle, 30 percent in the Netherlands, and seven out of eight Dutch people over age 15 have a bike.
I guess we should use our bikes more.

Lets draw a bike.

  • Start by writing two big Os. Put a dot in their middle.
  • Write a V in between the two Os. Make the right arm a little longer.
  • Write another V with its end tip at the left wheel and top tips joining big V.

  • Write a small O as shown to make axle of the paddle. Join the tip of big V and the dot of front wheel with a long I.
  • Make paddle by writing L.
  • Write a horizontal I to divide big V into two. 

  • Make seat with a thick small I. Finish wheels by writing a lot of Is.
  • The handle of this bike can be made by writing a very flat U, you can also think of it as a bent I.
  • Basket is optional. It can be made by writing the number 7.

Bike is ready!! I hope our young friends Raj and Yash will have lots of fun with their bike this weekend!!
