About Me:
The very first time I learned a bike was back at 4 years old, when I was given a bike too high for me that I couldn't get the balance right and I never picked up cycling since, thinking that I might have some balance problem from birth. Then I read about how everyone can in fact ride a bicycle, and I would love to hit two birds with one stone by cycling to work and study while get some exercise at the same time. I decided to give it a go again.

Being a bit harsh on myself does help

Posted on October 26, 2011 at 6:27pm 2 Comments

Third day I rolled between home and work within walking distance. I suddenly feel smarter already - I changed my choice of street from what I usually walk on to one that has less traffic, and all of a sudden this sense of awareness and "route detection" clicked into my head. Now when I see a street I naturally evaluate how cycling friendly it is for my level of comfort.


Today I also pushed myself mentally to pedal up an up slope when I was heading home. I was struggling to…


Getting there!

I've been chipping in 10-15 minutes worth of small practices here and there throughout my last week during my study. I manage to improve little by little everytime, and today is my first day attempting at riding to work, which is also in Annandale within walkable distance, so it's only a short ride, but provides a feasible practice.


I still stagger a lot and when I have to use more force on the pedals with up slopes, I still lose my balance easily. I do find it easier to…


A kind warning

This happened on the day I bought my bike. I live in a studio apartment with an open car park where I initially left my bike locked to a pillar. After finishing my dinner I decided to mess with it, then I found a note stuck on the frame suggesting me not to leave the bike there, for the writer of the note has had his bike stolen twice there, even with the lock. I took the advice and now awkwardly carry my bike up and down the stairs between my room and outside. 


I would have…


Practice Day 2

Only 15 minutes spent and I'm surprised to realised that, even without significant improvement on my bike balancing, I still broke a lot of sweat under a cool rainy weather today in Annandale. It felt like quite a work out even though I haven't managed to successfully ride it yet.

I'm still having trouble maintaining a straight line - I kept steering to one side without meaning to, and then lose my balance. The car park under my apartment has a light slope that I practiced to slide… Continue
