Facing my fear of cycling!

My partner kindly bought me a brand new bike the Christmas before last and until yesterday it has spent 20 months in the garage! My fear of riding a bike stems back from childhood (whilst visiting relatives in Canada) when I fell over the handlebars and into a bush and a wheel spoke went into my knee. I had no idea that I was supposed to pedal backwards on that particular bike in order to stop!
“Don’t worry mummy, I can teach you to ride a bike”, said my 6 year old daughter, so yesterday morning she woke me up at 6am and we pushed our bikes to the nearby green. It didn’t take me long to feel confident again and this morning we rode further and I was actually disappointed when we arrived home. We vowed to take an early morning ride every day for the rest of the holidays. Children can be so encouraging – and she even offered to take the photo to prove that I did it (see below).
Who said you can’t have fun when you are not actually going on holiday?
