    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

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

    Okay, so I've grown up never knowing how to really ride a bicycle. I've had several chronic illnesses which lead to me being bed bound for the main duration of my childhood, leaving me unfamiliar with a lot of things - like bike riding, swimming etc. I am now 21 years old, out...

    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...
