A friend of mine is becoming more and more interested in biking, but he never learned to ride a bike as a child. I think his interest is being perked by my enthusiasm for riding as of late. He'd certainly like to join me on my commutes and leisurely rides.
If we were to go out and try to get him on a bike, just how soon do you suspect one could become "road ready"? As a child, I seem to remember not being able to ride the first day, learning to stay on two wheels the next day, and finally, getting more comfortable with turning on my bike.
