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.

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?


Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !

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 .
