As I mentioned before, I mostly self-taught myself to ride a bicycle. That certainly came with success and failure. The road that leads to my house is on a bit of a hill, so I got over-confident in my early days. In a rush and panic, I wasn't able to get the brakes to work to stop in time. So when I rode, I hit our storage building but in a rather comical way. I didn't get seriously injured, but walking back to the house was rather uncomfortable.
