We had the second theoretical-practical course to learn about riding the Yayacleta (Nanacycle) on the 19th of January. Biciclistas de Corella and Alhama High School have purchased this trishaw with the money that has been raised in multicultural markets, sports events like the San Silvestre Run and donations.
Thirty people gathered in the Youth Center of Corella at 10:00. First, Cristina Gallo gave a briefing about our Erasmus project and read the first chapter of the trishaw notebook. We learned that ten elderly people had enjoyed the trips with our Yayacleta up to that moment.
Twelve people had already done the theoretical part of the course on the 15th of December and joined Juan Luis to do the practical training. The rest, me included, stayed with Cristina and Toño to learn about Cycling Without Age (CWA).
At the end, Toño proposed a tracking workshop with Quique and Eugenio, our local rangers. We went to «Fuente de los patos» (Duck´s Fountain), a water spring with unbelievable underground galleries. The entrance was so small and narrow that we could only enter in pairs. We also tracked footprints, nests, feathers, and traces of other river banks animals.
We are looking forward to having the next tracking workshop and to learning to ride our Yayacleta.
