As I have got older I have got a little braver about trying new things. When it comes to bike riding I have romantic images of the Hubby and I riding over to our local park for a picnic in the sunshine flying around my head so when the Hubby asked what I wanted for Christmas I asked for a bike.
My new bike
But fear not dear readers for I am not giving up yet! After checking out some very helpful videos on Youtube I vow to try again but this time I'm planning on wheeling my bike over to the Purple Fairies garden where I can practice on a nice long stretch of soft grass (rather than hard concrete) without the fear of people watching my feeble efforts and in the meantime I will be conjuring up more images like this in my mind to help motivate me!
