Bike riding in Nigeria is a relatively popular sport. Citizens of the Giant of Africa take delight in partaking and cheering participants in the activity. Blazing the trail is Aisha Vatsa who is popularly known as “Fly Girl.”
How did she bag the coveted title?
The energetic bike rider bagged the title in a fiercely competed race – BT 2018 Championships – which was held in the city of Benin in Edo State.
The competition included both male and female riders. Beating many male contestants, Aisha emerged the third fastest bike rider.
Speaking on the downsides of the sport, Aisha says that biking can be dangerous, but it also teaches one virtues of self-control and being responsible for one’s actions.
