    Can't Ride A Bike, Can't Ride A Motorbike?

    Currently And Slowly Learning!

    I never learned to ride a bike

    because nobody in my family had the patients to teach anyone anything. I tried in the past to try to teach myself and well it didn't turn out well.

    Longing

    Learning to ride a bike is in my bucket list. When I was a child, i had a little bike which had those two smaller tires at the back for support. I could remember how much i enjoyed racing with my friends. That was a distant memory that i would want to relieve again. I have this...

    It's Just Like Riding A Bike...

     When I was younger I really could ride a bike. As a teen, I rode a bike to get to where I needed to. It was great. I went without riding one for about 5 years, and my mother gave me hers. I got on it like I had always done previously, but this time was very, very...

    Is That So Wrong?

    Yes, I'm 19 and I've never learned how to ride a bike and I never tried learning. I'm always afraid of falling and I just can't get myself to try it. Whenever we open the topic about bikes, my friends always get shocking looks why I can't ride one. It's very funny, really, I'm...

    I used to have a bike

    when I was younger. But I could only ride it when my parents were home...so I didn't get to practice as much, and I still don't know how to ride it. I asked my mom if I could go buy a bike today. But she said, "No...How about we go buy you a car! Get a car instead of a bike!" I...

    I'm Learning........ Slowly

    I have never really had any Physical prowess, and my balance is shocking; It all stems from birth complications but point being I'm just not very good at sports and alike. The Balance was always the part that took me ages to conquer, and then it would come down to the stopping...
