You’re legally allowed to vote, you can order a drink at any bar in the United States, you may even have a gray hair or two.
And yet, there’s one thing that you still don’t know how to do, and it’s something that it seems every eight year-old has mastered: you don’t know how to ride a bike.
You’re not alone! In this booklet:
—Learn how one 34 year-old woman decided, one and for all, to transform that two-wheeled mystery machine into a viable mode of transportation.
—Explore the psychology and physiology of learning a new physical skill as an adult.
—Start your own bicycling journey with a collection of resources specifically tailored to the adult learner.
