Infinity Ride 2020 takes stop at The Mitti Cafe; para cyclists interact with specially-abled employees to raise awareness about para sports
During the journey, the riders have so far visited various NGOs, schools to interact and inspire children and other specially-abled people. One such interaction happened on Saturday following their arrival at city hub, Koramangala where the 30-member Infinity Ride team visited The Mitti Cafe—a chain of inclusive cafes entirely run by specially-abled people.
“The team at the Mitti Cafe really enjoyed interacting with para cyclists. The cyclists shared their journey and a lot of other things. Our team enthralled to hearing about them. Cyclists in turn saw inclusion of healthy food at the cafe which was very interesting for them to understand how healthy food can be made and served by these specially-abled people and how they are leading life with dignity and earning with love and respect. For me inclusion has been about acceptance of persons with disabilities in every aspect of work and making them feel absolutely loved in this space. To make them feel capable in every sense and work independently and happily,” said Darshana Nahata, Creative Head at Mitti Cafe.
Following a stop in Bengaluru, the sixth edition of Infinity Ride will resume their remaining journey of 705km on Sunday with Karnataka’s Hon’ble Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa flagging off the ride at Vidhana Soudha in the morning. The riders will then head towards Tamil Nadu through Dharmapuri and further visit three more cities before reaching their destination Kanyakumari on December 31.
