At least I did it before I turn 30, I get some credit for that right? I have never in my life learned how to ride a bike with no hands. The reason being that I am the biggest wuss you will ever meet and am terrified of getting hurt. I'm not athletic, I hate having the ball, I don't do well with team sports...all because I'm a big sissy! Same goes for no hands. When I was little my dad and I used to go on bike rides all the time. He'd do no hands but no matter what he said I'd never try it. Jamey and I went for a ride on the Alum Creek Trail and it was gorgeous and quiet and there was grass on both sides and I was wearing my helmet, seemed like I wasn't going to get a better opportunity. Jamey was a good coach and by the end I was able to balance, ride, pedal, and steer all with no hands!! I was seriously giddy and sounded like a 4 year old screaming to Jamey, "Look at me!" One demon down. Next summer maybe I'll learn how to dive.
