A Big thanks- your advice helped me teach my girlfriend
Thanks so much to everyone who has posted about teaching adults to ride.
Remove the pedals and lower the seat all the way down- it really works!!!!!
We did the 'walking' practice for about 5 1-hour sessions and then I put the
pedals on and raised the seat an inch. We now practice every couple days
riding in the nearby high school parking lot. She still has a long way to go
but can ride on her own steam for up to 5 minutes at a time without stopping
to put a foot on the ground and get her bearings.
PS- shes 32.
you can teach an old dog new tricks
