You know that saying that you never forget how to ride a bike? Well, that’s a lie. I learned how to ride a bike as a kid. I begged my mother since she never let me do anything because she thought everything would kill me or I would get hurt. Finally, I convinced her to teach me. After many falls, bumps and scrapes, I finally learned. I never really had anywhere to ride a bike though.

Eventually we moved to Georgia and my parents didn’t want to take my bike along. We never got another one. I thought I would still know how to ride one so I tried again in high school. I got up and ran into a tree. Got up again and ran into a mailbox. So I gave up.

Being at Google for Tech Camp this weekend (which I’ll write about later), I thought this would be the best time to learn again on a Google Bike! After a bit, something did start coming back to me. It was really hard to break and slow down… and turn… and not be scared of falling… but I did it! Yay for reliving childhood!
