    For those that were taught young on how to ride a bicycle, what age did you learn at? Did you have a lot of bumpy roads? I know when I learned I was probably 8 or 9, and I loved the mountain bikes growing up because I was tall. I didn't really have any major falls off the bicycle though. I don't have one today, but I wish I had one.

    So, if you've rode a bicycle before, did you find the learning experience to be fun? Do you have a bike today? If so, what kind?

    And, if you're not sure how to ride a bicycle see this: http://www.wikihow.com/Ride-a-Bicycle

    I've been riding for a little under a month now, and I LOVE it. It's a great way to get exercise :D

    My dad's been a cyclist for years now, and we're currently watching Le Tour de France. Is anyone else?

    I've been looking up to Lance Armstrong since I was younger. Who's currently winning it?

    Been riding bikes since I could walk, so when I was around 1,5 years old. In the Netherlands it's very common to ride a bike, especially in big cities where it's easier to move around on two wheels instead of four. I started with a childrens trike than when I reached the age of 4 or 5 I got my own real bike. In the beginning my stepdad added two support wheels to the backwheel of my bike, one to each side. But as soon as I learned how to find my balance, they were taken off. As I got older and longer, so changed my bike from children sized to adult. Today I have a grandma's bike, as we like to call that type of bike in Holland. Here's a picture:

    It's nothing fancy, there is but one gear and to brake you peddle backwards. But it gets me around, and that's all that matters.

    Amusing but worthwhile read xD

    I've known how to ride for a long time, I just wish I still had a bike to ride at the moment x_x
