When people use the cliche to me 'it is like riding a bike, you never forget once you learn' that does not exactly inspire confidence in me.

My brother-in-law tried to teach me to ride my bike and assured me i would not fall off and I did, I got up again, and whatever way he pushed it, bike and me landed on the ground and finally, i give it once chance, again he let go with a push, as opposed to steering me and I fell- not to want to prolong making myself look like a grand old fool at the age of 5, I gave up and never got on one again, except for hours upon hours in a gym on an exercise bike :)

Add another to the list and feel less alone! :D<br />
My great-grandparents tried to teach me when I was little but eventually we all gave up, haha. My friends kind of laughed a little this summer when they learned because they all rode bikes everywhere XD<br />

One of them didn't ride a bike either, but one of the others taught her how one day and joked that someone should teach me. I like walking though.

Never got the hang of it either!! I feel so much better now :)
