Just like riding a bike

Huge Life Accomplishment:

With my pants appropriately rolled up, shiny red helmet, friend ready to call 911 and some organic grapes, I learned to ride my $10 rummage sale bike today. (I'd like to give a shout out to my cousins who did facilitate a riding session in high school. I'm sorry I didn't take that experience and peddle far with it.) I've been afraid of biking for a long time. Sometimes, I think, overcoming something that seems small but feels huge is just the way to empower yourself.  Don't know how to peel a carrot? Learn today. Don't know how to put your hair into a beehive? Learn today. Like me? Afraid to jump on the ol' bike? Well, not everyone can have Robin's helpful hand, but you can follow my real life google from earlier to ride a bike. (Enjoy the background music!)

Learn on and feel your self-esteem soar.


  1. i am so proud of you my friend! you are conquering the world.

  2. i hardly ever read blogs on the computer (just my phone), so i'm a lazy it's taken me a couple days to tell you...

    AWESOME JOB, ASHLEY! now you and ryan should borrow our rad red tandem bike that we've sadly never used (except one ride around our old block).
