It's as easy as riding a bike...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I've ridden some really whacked out stuff and like to believe I can ride anything. Would love to take a crack at this....

That was kind of trippy. It was interesting to see how fast the kids brain figured out how to do it.

Kids have all kinds of advantages. Aside from not worrying about what works and what doesn't, they're made of rubber.

Kinesthetic sense is weird. I've tried to train myself to do all kinds of things the opposite way my body wants to do them -- it's surprisingly hard. My guess is riding this bike is like trying to learn to throw with a non dominant arm.
