A place for a crazy person to ramble about what will most likely be random and miscellaneous topics, making for a haphazard and scattered blog. :D

The Horrors Of...

Posted January 3rd, 2013 at 05:08 PM by GolurkIsDaBomb

Spoiler:


...and no, I do not mean the charming family. Yes bikes, and this Christmas I had to relearn how to ride one, causing me lots of stress and worry in advance. I know it sounds incredibly silly, feel free to make fun. But I hadn't touched or thought bikes in years, and hadn't ridden one successfully since I was... 7? It was long ago. I'd always hated bikes, thinking I'd fall off and that just carried onwards to the near present.

We went to The Netherlands which is practically a bicycle path >_< So, dreading th worst, I set off with some of the family on the bus to go to the square, where I thought we'd just hang out. Of course the first thing we did was rent bikes, and here's me knowing I can't even get on one of those things without falling off. AND THE FIRST THING WE DO IS RENT THEM. Also, the lack of helmets was really reassuring. And the motorcycles and mopeds that can go in the bike lanes? Perfect.

For that first day, I was right. I could not make myself get on that bike. And I had to walk the hour-long walk home. But surprisingly i was less bitter than I thought I'd be. And then the next day... I was actually able to ride it! And I know everyone learns how to ride a bike when they're 3, but whatever I was proud of myself! And then throughout the rest of the week, I did pretty well.

And I never fell off once!

...

I thought I'd give that cheesy ending a try. I fell of loads of times >_<

*Also, there will probably be many more blogs concerning specific days of my recent vacation over the next week, so stay tuned for those?!

    Golurk dont feel bad I haven't ridden a bike in over 10 years. I probably would do worse than you could imagine. I am looking forward to more vacation blogs though!
