As much as I want to be I will never be one of those cute european women flying around the city on their bikes.This is due to my insane irrational fear of cycling in the city. Give me a bike and a quiet country road completly devoid of cars or people and I'll be off, but if there are cars in the vicinity, I freak out. I don't really know why or when this happened. I had a good start with a little green bike decorated with dinosaurs but when the training wheels came off, everything fell apart. It might be due to my total lack of ability or balance but that hasn't held me back in other aspects of my life. So until I pluck up the courage to go velib-ing around the city, I will just have try and make walking cool.
