Turn back the clock: How to ride a bike.

Each day in second grade, we were assigned a writing topic.  Often, I filled multiple pages with thoughts, feelings, or memories in my young life. I’m guessing this day (February 24, 1984) I didn’t feel much like writing about “How to ride a bike”, however.

  1. Let your dad hold on the bike.
  2. Tell him to let go.
  3. Ride it yourself.
  4. Now you know.

(Since it really is THAT easy, I need to fill up the tires on my bike and get riding again!)

  1. get on bike
    have dad hold bike while you ride
    Dad lets go of bike
    you go speeding down a hill
    you fall off bike
    you swear you will never ride bike again

  2. LOL, I wish it were that easy trying to learn at 28. :P
