The Epiphany

I was driving home one day, a short time after I'd started this adventure, when I realized that I had set about this biking thing all wrong.

You see, to get to my house you have to drive down a steep hill with a pretty sharp curve halfway down it.  As I was braking down the hill and in anticipation of the turn, it suddenly hit me:





Biking is like driving, in that you BRAKE to control your speed!



It is *not* like skiing, where you FALL to control your speed!


(Ok, yes, there may be one or two *other* techniques to slow down while skiing, but that's the one that works for me.)

I believe Dave reacted thusly when I told him of my epiphany:

  2. Me too. That's why I never excelled at skating or roller-blading, or sledding, or soccer...basically anything that required both speed and dexterity.
