    Hello everyone.

    Hi, guys. I've been wanting to learn how to ride a bike for quite some time. I'm 21 and *gasp* never got past training wheels because my bike was stolen, haha. I'm just trying to soak in the knowledge from this board, so I won't be posting much.

    Happy trails

    Set aside your fear. It's really quite easy. I'm hoping to teach my wife (who's a few years older than you) to ride. Maybe this will be the year. Let us know how it goes. We'll be cheering for you.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    There's a few threads on learning how to ride a bike. Strange but true--the faster you go, the easier it is to maintain your balance.

    Poke through General Cycling, or the Family and Recreational forum, and you should be able to find a thread or two on the subject.

    What kind of bike are you looking at getting for a replacement?

    My bike was stolen about 11 years ago so I'm not even sure what I'm looking for. Folding bikes have caught my interest since I want to be able to use mass transit. There are so many different kinds, it's a bit overwhelming. Thanks for the greetings.

    Folders are very useful for someone who uses mass transit. There are a lot more varieties of bikes than there were ten years ago. Fortunately, we cover virtually all of them here .
