Ok, so deep breath and just do it... Hi! If you can't tell now, you'll realise soon enough, I'm super nervy about doing this. I'm completely and utterly out of my depth. I keep coming back to this community because it seems really friendly so have finally decided to go for it and post. I just can't face this process alone, it's just way more daunting than I prepared for. Please forgive my naivety! Riding a bike has been an idea I've flirted with on and off but never really thought I'd do it. But then I went out and got my L's over Melbourne Cup weekend. Gosh it was scary as all heck but I made it through! There's no one in my life that rides bikes, and while I'm fortunate enough to have supportive people who are happy I'm going ahead and doing something that excites me, they are pretty damn worried. Fair enough too! I'm a little thing about to put my life on two wheels in a world of big four wheel cars. Still it just simply means that I've been trying whatever I can to educate myself as to what I've gotten myself into so I can do it a well as I possibly can. Somethings you just can't do by yourself though and after three weeks of living this out on the internet, I've been dying to find a bike so I can start some real practical learning; but I can't even get into the next step - I've been way to terrified to actually go see a real bike... I've think I need some serious help. I need someone to hold my hand. I'm worried I'm going to be pretty demanding as a newbie since I have basically zero knowledge other than the day I went and got my L's, and I don't want to burden anyone so I guess that also adds to my nerves, gosh it's hard asking for help sometimes. So anyway... pulling the pressure off a bit, Hi! I'm super excited to be here.
