Never Too Late!

Hey everyone!

So happy to be here. Just started learning how to ride a bike. I'm 39 ( I know I'm a bit old for that) and a mother of an almost 3 year old boy. I've always wanted to learn to ride a bike but it was always put aside due to other things. But having a boy who loves outdoors and at a very young age wants to ride a bike, I thought maybe this is actually a good time. Never too late as my neighbor (who watched me from the very first time I rode a bike and fell till I got better) said. So with the help and patience of my very loving and supportive husband, here I am, finally able to ride a bike. And I just love it! So much that I want to start riding bike to and from work. My only regret is not learning earlier in my life. So to people out there who think they are too old to start learning, it's never too late! And don't say you're busy, if you really want to do something, you'll find time! Sorry fellas, did not mean to write a novel here, just so excited to meet other people who loves and enjoys this wonderful hobby. Cheers everyone! It's a beautiful day in Richmond! Perfect for bike riding! Name is Bernice btw.

Welcome to Bike Forums. You're not too old. I've known folks who learned when they were in their 50s.
Have fun.
