Do you know what is the hardest part of learning to ride a bike?

The pavement.

Interesting Fact: There are several early but unverified claims for the invention of bicycle-like machines. The earliest comes from a sketch said to be from 1493 and attributed to Gian Giacomo Caprotti, a pupil of Leonardo da Vinci. In 1998 Hans-Erhard Lessing described this as a purposeful fraud.[1][2] However, the authenticity of the bicycle sketch is still vigorously maintained by followers of Prof. Augusto Marinoni, a lexicographer and philologist, who was entrusted by the Commissione Vinciana of Rome with the transcription of da Vinci’s Codex Atlanticus.

    • I am happy to see that they do. I will do my best to continue those for you. Thank you very much for stopping by and checking out my work. 🙂

  1. I have just bought a bike, and I can tell you, 50 years or so after my last bike ride, that it’s true–you really don’t forget how to do it.

  2. Yep. It’s not the falling off that get’s you, because that’s just air. The ground is a little less forgiving. I’ve never forgotten how to fall off a bike.

    • Wow that’s amazing, I have never heard that one before but I do love it. Thank you very much for sharing it with us. 🙂
