I had been evading this notion of writing this experience but I guess it's about time. During our brief vacation in a lake resort last month, the children rented a bike and I was tempted to have one for myself. On the saddle, I had this scary feeling that I couldn't bike anymore. Remember that I have this occasional swelling on my right leg and I was retired from biking for several month. Now, back to the rented bike, my husband and the kids were prodding me so I relented. My husband pushed the bike and when it moved, I seemed to have lost control of the handlebar and I went straight to the plants by the sidewalk. Worse, I fell down. How could that happen when all I needed to do was to put my feet on the ground. I really couldn't say why but definitely I am now a failure in biking.
