Funny Story: Bicycle Mistake

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.

I've had my fair share of biking accidents. Even when I did learn how to ride properly, I still fell off so much my parents nicknamed me "Crash".

Our son begged me not to let go of his bike when I was teaching him to ride. But when he finally looked back he was startled to see I was at the other end of the block.

I had a bike at one time, but have not been on one in a long time. Lot of people ride them around here for exercise.
