The title says it all. I dug the old bike out of the garage, finally, and...It didn't work out so hot. My balance was really bad, and coupled with a wonky street, I got maybe 20 feet before I panicked a little and hit the brakes. With my confidence shot, I just walked the thing home.
Now, I haven't ridden a bike in probably close to a decade. I'm rusty at this. But I'm also, if not a grown man, at least well on my way there. I can't exactly pop training wheels onto this thing until I get back up to speed.
Thus, my dilemma. What can I do to help improve my balance and control of this thing, short of the school of hard knocks?
Oh, and would tires without enough pressure make the problem worse? Because I checked them when I got home, and they were only around 10-15 PSI, when the side said they should be around 40-65.
