I don’t bike (bicycle) anymore. I have not for, I think, the past 5-6-7 years. I find it hard to get on and of the bike. Probably an age issue as well as overweight 😦 Neither does my husband do it anymore. He, unfortunately, has bad hips, bad knees, bad ankles 😦 We used to bike a lot. We very often, after work, we made 40 to 60 km tours. For the last couple of years I have been talking about that maybe I would be able to kickbike. About two weeks ago I bought a used one. Oh dear ! I had no idea it would be so hard and difficult. I almost gave it up immediately but my son said why not try it for a little longer. It’s getting better but, still quite shaky and wobbly. I only use my left leg to kick with. I wonder will I ever learn to use both. We’ll see. The other day my husband wanted to try it. So I let him. I told him to take it easy because of his legs. I think he better not do it anymore. If I don’t learn to do it well I will sell it next spring.
