Thanks very much for starting out this group - I've had a great time biking in the city, but it's nice to have a group to support it!

Here's a suggestion: Albion Hills. Located in Caledon, a little over 1 hr northwest of Toronto. A great set of trails with a good variety of difficulty levels, from simple loops for beginners to singletracks for the more advanced.

Here's a link:

There's a link there somewhere for the trails in PDF format. It's the location for ChicoRacing's bi-annual 24 hour races.

We should have meetups for those who had mountain bikes, road bikes and for any other kinds.

Hi folks,

Just joined the group.

I do have one teensy problem. I do not know how to ride a bike.

I tried to learn a year ago. But ended up falling off bruising and scraping myself. I kind of called it quits at the time. It was also at that time shortly after my open heart surgery (May 2008 .... valve replacement).

It's now summer 2009 and still have dreams of riding a bike.

I do not own a bicycle yet. I know there are points (rules?) about measuring a bike to one's height or something rather. But am not sure about that.

I'm just wondering if anyone here is willing enough to teach a wuss like me how to ride a bicycle.

I'm 43, and overweight.

Cheers,
Chris

That's a bit of a toughie! I barely remember learning as a kid, and it involved a lot of bruises and scrapes confused

Here are a couple of links that could help:

Wouldn't mind an urban ride along Bloor Street and whatnot.

falling is a part of learning you should learn on grass if you are that uncoordinated as a child i practice playing sport climbing trees and other things all these skills you learn will not doubt make thinks like learning to ride a bike easier
I hope that you do not have any serious injuries but you will have other accidents that is a part of life
please get use to living
