Terror on the Streets

Today I was trying to get something from my car before a rehearsal started, and I only had a few minutes, so the director said "You can take my bike." His bike is legendary, so I thought, What fun! I'll ride the bike to my car and it will just take a minute! What a brilliant plan!

Except I haven't ridden a bike in years. And it was terrifying. Plus, this bike is old, and clunky, and has really awkward handlebars. I thought I was going to fall off the bike and get run over by a car. It was truly the scariest experience of my summer.

crazy bike riding - D+ (points for the exhiliration of fear)

And people say once you learn how to ride a bike you never forget. What do they know?

That's hilarious! I agree with you! I got on a bike about a year ago, and it was like, what am I doing??

I completely agree w/Scott. What do they know? I am certain that I could not remember how to ride, if I even remotely dared to attempt it!
