Ellie kinda sorta taught me to ride a bike today (I never actually learned, as a kid). I can stay upright and I don't fall over when making turns, but I can't yet choose the angle of the turn or which direction I go - the bike still controls those. I'll keep practicing on Mom's bike while I'm here, and when we get back to Boston, I'll have to learn hills and shifting on Ellie's bike (assuming it's not too icy). Once I'm at least competent to ride up and down Green Street, I'll get my own.

I'm so very glad to hear that it really is never too late to learn how to ride a bike!

Next step: learn to ride a recumbent bike. ;)

Oh, all I ride these days is recumbents (I own four, all very different).

A recumbent trike is even easier to ride than an upright bike, if that sounds at all tempting. And it's so comfortable that it's like riding the cushiest lawn chair ever...

*eee* I am so excited for you! (I didn't learn how until I was nine. That was a SUPER AWESOME day, and go you for pushing through and learning how!)
