I used to be able to ride as a child and teenager. Once I got a car, the bike became less necessary. I am sure that I would be able to ride again . On our up coming holiday, I will probably try bike riding again. It will be quicker than walking everywhere.
I never owned a pushbike and so I had little opportunity to learn. When I did try, I just could not 'get it' so happily resumed my favourite method of transport which is Walking!!I even would walk to and from work!!
This question has been asked before! The ONLY 1 time I have been on a bike, was when a friends teenage son tried to teach me in Bali! he was running along next to me, handing on to the left bike handle. I only lasted 2 or 3 minutes, because I felt I was too high off the ground! Ops! (I don't like heights!)
