Like Riding a Bike: On Learning as an Adult

28 pages10 minutes


You’re legally allowed to vote, you can order a drink at any bar in the United States, you may even have a gray hair or two.

And yet, there’s one thing that you still don’t know how to do, and it’s something that it seems every eight year-old around you has mastered: you don’t know how to ride a bike.

You’re not alone! In (Like) Riding a Bike, a short booklet, learn how one 34 year-old woman decided, one and for all, to transform that two-wheeled mystery machine into a viable mode of transportation. Explore the psychology and physiology of learning a new physical skill as an adult, and start your own bicycling journey with a collection of resources specifically tailored to the adult learner.
