How Can I learn or relearn?
My goal is to learn how to bike outside and get into cycling out doors for cardio, fun, and transportation. I tried learning as a kid, but no one had time to teach me, and the one person who did was very abusive to me and screamed at me, and it completely turned me off. Now that I’m older, I have a foldable bike but I’m tall. I was thinking about going for adult training wheels? My dad’s willing to take me out like once a week to a park, and I’m willing to go out around my house or to a park on my won as much as I can. The biggest problem I have is balance and I am 6 feet. I was told a hybrid bike is best for biking in trails and for going out on the road, etc. I’m willing to put the time in even if it takes 6 months, but can you give me some advice? I have a bike pump, and helmet, and cross trainers. Also, can you recommend a cheaper bike stand, for the reasoning that if it’s bad weather, I could sometimes set up my bike into like an indoor spinning or cardio bike. I was also told to look into adult bike lessons, but there are none in the area. My dad is willing to pay for some stuff to help me out, but it can’t be too expensive. I also am interested in inline skating for cardio.
