I brought bikes for my son and myself last year well put it this way I have brought a bike (cycle) for my son every year trying to teach him to ride and they have just sat there.. so as i said I brought one each last year with the thought that if i rode a bike that would encourage him to ride??? my son now 5' 10 at 13yrs old but nope he has no interest what so ever so now left with my bike its stood in the way in my hallway that long the inner tube was perished good old Aldi they doing tyre tubes so just got them and fixed the bike AND excuse me while I have a rant ....who?? designs bikes nowadays certainly not us women as now instead of subtle slipping of the leg through then sitting on the seat no you have cock your leg over AND what's with the seat yet again thanks to Aldi i have got a decent saddle seat not the pencil the old seat looks like and no its not a man's bike its pink ok that means nothing but they said it was a woman's bike so the fun begins as can't put this off any longer I will have a go tomorrow but not telling any one saves the crowd appearing mind you i might win an Oscar for my performance queen but with my track record best put the emergency services on high alert and better tell my sister as she can patch any cuts and bruises but hoping nothing will happen ( not a hope in hell) I will ride my bike along the wildlife trail and back then never walk again as my legs will be knackered just like to say I haven't ridden a bike for over 30yrs but WHY YOU DOING IT i hear you ask why not ? something to do .I know act my age not my shoe size but hey a new chapter or not we will see today now as its passed midnight and all good ideas are hatched then regretted affraid in the morning new adventure or not 3462454224 new adventure or not 3462454224

I echo this, wish I had the time now to get back on my bike as its a great way of keeping fit.

i love cycling but it doesn't explain why i have over £2k worth of mountain bike that has gone unused since last year,come to think of it looking out of the window i think i have found the answer as to why.

My mum never learned to ride a bike and she never managed to get the hang of swimming either Smile

we were 7 in our family, couldn't afford one bike never mind one each, so have never learned to ride a bike either,
learned to ride a motorbike though.
til someone knocked me off.
