That sounds like a new dance, doesn't it? Hubby and I recently returned to cycling after a 20+ year layoff. We are both 50+. I am learning fast and having a blast. He's a better cyclist than I am.
I have a problem that I'm trying to overcome. I seem to wobble as I ride if I am not going fast enough. I ride a Giant Cypress SX, a hybrid. It's not the lightest bike in the world so it is hard to go fast enough all the time to eliminate the wobble. Just cruising around the neighborhood at a casual pace causes my bike to wobble. If I take my hand off the bars to wave at someone (which I frequently do... I'm a waver), it's hard to keep the bike from wobbling or hold it steady with my other hand.
Is this typical when first getting started? What can I do to improve in this area? Sometimes, I try to imagine a straight line painted in the road and to keep my tire on that imaginary line, but I can't concentrate on that all the time because there are other real dangers to focus on instead.
Is this something I will eventually outgrow? Do I need a lighter bike, stronger legs, more practice.... or what?
