I have been riding for almost a week now and trying to practice for around 1-1.5hrs per day. Have been practicing with support and also doing the launching into the abyss technique.
There is progress happening, have managed to cycle for around roughly 6m a few times, although it is rather inconsistent. Finding that at the start of each session it takes a while for it to come back and then things start to progress a bit quicker. Still many many many falls/learning.
Have managed to cycle around a tennis court with support stopping about 5-6x. Starting to get a smoother pedal technique and have less support for 1-2revs.
Am finding that the brain sort of goes into abort mode, of stopping pedaling, stopping leaning forwards and when launching off. Trying to push through this as once going it feels great, just overcoming the fear and the brain saying not to do it.
I’m 37, can anyone suggest any pointers from when they were learning or maybe a rough timeline for development? Was hoping to nail it within a week so tomorrow would be the 7th day…
