    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.

    Currently And Slowly Learning!

    It is so encouraging to know that there are other adults out there that also can't ride a bike.  Now I know I'm totally not the only one!  I started learning two days ago and I've been dedicating about an hour every night to try and learn how to ride a two-wheeler.  I'm riding...
