    How do you answer those questions? With the truth.

    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.

    Sure, I remember that, what’s the other way?

    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.
