The Bicycle

I was never much of a sport for bicycles even as a toddler. And that remained the case in my growing years. I preferred spending my evening time after school learning dance and music.

But after a certain age of free will and unobjected dependency, if you haven’t ridden the bicycle and fallen a hundred times doing so, you won’t know your neighbourhood for one, nor would you know what it feels like to manage a vehicle on a busy road.

So here I am, and I’m sure there are quite a few like me, who haven’t taken the joys and falls and experience of balancing on those two large thin wheels through our neighbourhood streets. We probably saved on a few falls, but is that a trade-off against the heavy dependence on public or kin-sponsored transport? Hardly.
