A year ago, I’d been riding a bike in Sydney’s CBD for a few months and my friends were doing it too.
I was a little bit scared of getting in trouble for riding the bike around town but I didn’t want to get in trouble.
And the fact that I had been doing it for so long, with my friends and family, made me realise how much I needed to learn how to ride a bike, which I had never done before.
After a month, we were having fun.
But, we quickly found out, the best way to get to the place where we needed to go was to ride the bike alone, at a place that was familiar to us.
