    I was given a beat-up bike at age 8 and told to learn to ride it. “Yell if you hurt yourself.” Best way to learn how in my opinion.

    I had the pedaling part without falling over down pat right away, I just couldn’t get started from a dead stop.
    I’d lean the bike against a tree (or a parked car) and push off.

    For lack of a better description: “The Horse Mount.” Left foot on 3/4 raised left pedal.
    Push off with right foot while putting weight on left foot.
    Swing right leg over top of bike to right pedal.
    Push right pedal forward and down.
    “Keep on truckin’. "

    I don’t get the difference between the two scenarios

    I learned to ride so young that the bike was too close to the ground to get hurt if you fell. Apparently I was also a hipster at 4 years old, as it was also a “fixie”!

    See? It’s true. You really do never forget how.

    The truth is at once the easiest and the most difficult thing to tell.

    Taught my son to ride on the baseball diamond. Why? Psychology. “Falling in the dirt won’t hurt as much as on the sidewalk”. Took for hours before he felt solid enough to ride on the concrete.

    I’m glad I got to teach him, but would have been just as proud if he learned on his own.

    why ask people who have no children??? might as well ask a deaf person how they like Mozart.

    @Ewal Doh: “Upsetting”? I really get a kick outta the way you chose your words. Does this strip “distress [me] emotionally”? You’re gonna decide that for me, and share it with me and the forum? This is the haughtiness I’ve come to expect from you. Lay it on me!

    Do this for me first, though, Doh, please. Read today’s “Doonesbury”. Trudeau is saying about conservatives what I might say about know-it-alls. They’re the ones to be satirized. It’s outta whack for it to be the other way around. My point from Day One.
