my confession the story of how I learned to ride a bike at the ancient old age of 34.
I was not a natural. I was not graceful. I was not gracious. I did cry a little. And I have a very patient husband.
Like Riding a Bike is also a compendium of the best resources I could find for adult learners, from psychological tips on learning any new activity as an adult, to how to find a cycling instructor, from the basic physics of a bicycle to how to teach yourself.
If you’ve ever tried to learn a new physical activity as an adult — or tried to teach someone — I hope you’ll find something valuable in this quick read. And most of all, I hope it inspires a few more adults to conquer their fears and finally learn to ride a bike this season.
