A new topic! I learned when I was 16 or 17. I had mowed some lawns one summer,
and decided I didn’t want to waste it on something frivolous. I went out and
bought a Schwinn 24" uni for $45. It came with a booklet, so I at least new to
start out from a curb. The first night I held on to my aunt, although knowing
how hard people hold on to me I must have fallen off fairly quickly. She had to
work during the day (I stayed with her in the summer while my parents were in
the Dominican Republic), so I made do with two broomsticks. It was about two
weeks before I could ride down the street without falling.
