Really. I haven’t been on a bike for a few years now–no place to ride in cities–maybe I should test this theory.
Ha! I wish you luck! The adage about not ever forgetting to ride a bike seems to have been proven untrue by all my experience; but I can’t quite understand… hopefully at least it’ll be easier to relearn for those folks.
When ol’ Sam was learning, remember that ALL adults were learning for the first time – imagine what a leap of faith that was! If I remember correctly, the context for this quote is that he did try, and failed a few too many times to appreciate the experience.
If I misremember and actually made that up, at least it’s an instructive story.
