It's just like riding a bike...

Hi, my name is Dawn, I'm 33yrs old and I have never ridden a bicycle.

Not knowing how to ride a bike is something that has partly defined me for the whole of my life. It's just one of those things that crops up repeatedly and I have to explain yet again that no I don't know how to ride, I never learnt as a child, blah, blah, blah. I am very bad at doing things that I'm not very good at, I avoid situations that embarrass me and do my best to ignore things that make me feel silly.

Anyway, I saw this course advertised via twitter this week - and I emailed to be put on the waiting list.

In the meantime I'm going to try and teach myself with the aid of the internet, a husband who promises not to laugh too much and this

Triumph 20 Shopper

It needs a new brake cable and a some TLC but it's in pretty good nick for an old bike.

Wish me luck!
