Why is it that when I was a kid, I could ride all over town without using my hands (except occasionally to stop) and now that I'm an old fat guy, I can't?
This past weekend, I was riding my first century and there were times when my back needed a stretch. I thought it would be a good idea to sit up in the saddle and stretch my arms over my head for a few seconds. Whenever I tried, the front wheel would wobble and I was all over the road!
I've only been riding (seriously, anyway) for a couple of months, so there's a lot I'm having to re-learn. But, this no hands thing: Will I ever be able to teach myself again? Is it hopeless? <grin>
