I was recently going through some old pictures that my mom keeps and I came across this laughtastic picture from the first day I ever rode a bike without training wheels. My dad, always knowing when hilarious disaster is ready to strike, had his camera (and impeccable timing) at the ready.
(sorry about the crappy quality- I don't have a scanner and this is a digital picture of the original print.)
From this to living a car free lifestyle some 27 years later. I guess the impending doom of that moment didn't stick with me for very long
I figured that I've read so much valuable information on this forum that I would give a laugh as payment. And please, feel free to post your own bike related humiliating pictures so I don't feel like the only uncoordinated fool
