Prior to cycling, I never had a sport. Possessing the coordination of a dizzy toddler, basketball and football were never strong suits. I gravitated towards music because it didn't involve objects in flight headed towards my face, save for the odd music stand here and there.
To ride a bike, only a few things are necessary to do well;
- Be tenacious (of which I am capable)
- Stay on the bike (of which I am mostly capable)
