I'm trying to do something else instead of walking (very boring) so i got the bike out dusted off the dust bunnies, put air in tires. On my first attempt had trouble getting on the thing and when i did started up my gravel driveway slight incline and fell off just as I got to the road maybe 5 feet. Is our balance off due to being heavy and or not biking for at least 5+ years. Hubby teasing me I need training wheels... How do I get started?
it took me a couple attempts to get on and get going. One thing to consider is that the bike might be too big or small for you making it very awkward - you might need to adjust the seat post or handlebars to make it more comfortable.
I just started too. Don't give up. Have your hubby hold onto the back until you get going. My sister held onto mine for the first three days, but after that she said I didn't need it anymore. Been on my own since. Try it again!
