N+1 cyclists in the world!

In about 45 minutes, I taught a young lady from work how to ride a bike. I was probably as excited as her, if not more. She started from having never tried at all, to pedaling around the parking lot albiet wobbly. She grew up in Africa and never had a chance as a kid; at around 6'6" she was afraid of falling and getting hurt... thinking it would be too hard.

That was exciting, I feel like a new dad.

You have done a good thing. Consider this some e-jerky

I will be doing something similar in about a month or so, moving in with some new roomates. One tried riding a bike once and "failed", in her words. SO I'm going to fix that.

Seems like a plausible theory, but I have no idea.
