Background info: I started biking regularly the summer of 2013. Before that happened, I would only ride my bike when I went home to visit my parents or they wanted to visit me. Up until this year, I was a complete amateur, so over the first few months of biking on my own I’ve learned some valuable lessons I would like to share.
Lesson #1: It’s okay to swallow a fly. I mean, don’t do it on purpose, but sometimes it can’t be avoided so just roll with it.
