I don't know which parent taught it to me: I learned to stand facing the bike with the pedal forward, put my weight on the pedal and launch the bike with it, then throw the other leg over once moving. I can do them together pretty fluidly. I don't think about it. It's pretty much like pushing a kick scooter from the wrong side.

It never occurred to me I was doing anything improper until I read disdainful screeds on the Internet calling it the "Cowboy Mount" and it still doesn't feel improper enough to not do.
