What is wrong here. Riot VS Regular JS

Hey guys, I just started learning Riot and I am still pretty confused on why some code works in regular JS but not in Riot. Please take a look of the code
Riot that is not working…

<html>
        <p class="gotolesson1" ref="gotolesson1" onclick={ onClick }>Go To Lesson</p>
</html>

<script>
this.onClick = function (event) {
      this.refs.gotolesson1.location.href = "https://codepen.io/yn2329/live/pKZvGb";
    };
</script>

Regular JS that works

<html>
<p id="gotolesson1"
       ref="gotolesson1"
       onclick="myFunction()">Go To Lesson</p>
</html>
<script>
document.querySelector("#gotolesson1").onclick = function() {
  location.href = "https://codepen.io/yn2329/live/pKZvGb";
};
</script>

Could somebody please take a look of my code and tell me what is wrong here?
Appreciated!!! :blush:
