Who taught you to ride a bike?

I remember!! And I was magnificant!
I am self-taught... Do I get a pat on the back?
I can't remember what  I had for breakfast let alone who taught me to do anything.
I have never learned to ride a bike... wasn't for lack trying... just lacked the coordination and intelligence.
Here's my 2 cents

    Me and my baby bro who was 11 months younger, taught ourselves. We had access to a junk yard and decided to build our own bike.

    I taught myself. It took a year or too, but I got the basics. I'm still too afraid to ride crossing the street, next to anything/one, uphill or downhill. So I'm not very good at it.

    Both my parents tried and tried with me but to no avail. Then one day we were going through my paces with the bike and a neighborhood boy (he later became a Psychiatrist) walked over and asked if he could try. My Mother (who was pretty worn out by this time) said sure. So, he came over to me, whispered in my ear and off I went. To this day, I don't know what he said , don't remember but it worked, lol!

    My dad. My parents got me a used, 26" blue bike for my seventh birthday and I thought
    it was just wonderful. And when my Dad took me out front and grabbed the bike seat
    while I pedaled, I did not even realize that he had let got and I was on my own! What a
    hoot! I smile just thinking about it.

    When I was 6 years old, I taught myself on a 26 inch Elgin men's bicycle with the seat removed. The bar between the seat and handlebars was a double side by side bar, which didn't make it too bad to sit on.

    I got on it,fell off it, and kept getting on it-bloody knees and all-until I finally mastered it.

    That's been pretty much the story of my life-keep doing something until I master it.

    I didn't click the "self-taught" box because I don't expect-nor want-a "clap on the back"

    for doing something that has always been second nature to me since childhood...

    My father taught me the basics, he has never been very patient, but since childhood when I'm interested in something I can be very determined so I started to learn and I got the super fast pace, and when my brothers were growing teaches them.

    I have horrible balance thanks to some of my sensory issues. My folks tried but I never learned. I don't drive either for about the same reason. I don't know where I am on the road and I just am not safe.

    I believe I taught myself by riding on the grass a few times, and then on the pavement.
    I loved riding a bike, as it made me feel very independent, and I could ride just about anywhere I wanted to go. I loved roller skating on the side walk......those were the days when you used a skate key. What fun days that I would love to have back.

    My Daddy taught me...first with training wheels and then without. He always had the most patience of anyone I knew. He also taught me how to drive a car.
    How I would love to see him again!!
