M'kay. So I've had a few very nerve wracking and painful days at HART in Somerton, but thankfully, have passed my L's after initially failing Problem is, I found that when coming to a stop or even when I was completely stationary, I had this tendency to uh... drop my bike (thank you sooooooo much Justin, Marty and Mike @ HART btw for having the patience of saints!). I'd roll to a stop, put my left foot down, then try for my right, lose balance and oomph... "Maria, have you met the ground? No? Here, let's introduce you!" On one near miss I was just standing and waiting for my turn around the course when a gust of wind had me wobbling in my seat and nearly ass over t!ts again. Is it just me, or do other people have the same problem? I usually have excellent balance (20+ squats holding a medicine ball over my head whilst balancing on a balance ball ffs) but found that on more than a few occassions the bike got the better of me The stacks were so demoralising I'm starting to think that I have to re-think the whole bike thing... I'm 5ft and 47kgs, but given there are lots of female riders (and even kids) who seem to be able to control their trusty steeds, is it just me??
