Everyday is a bike day! It’s kind of funny and embarrassing to say, but a few months ago I decided to learn how to ride a bicycle for the first time in my life! For some reason I had never got a chance, but always had a wish to ride one.
Little by little I got used to my two wheeled friend to the point I ride it everyday: when commuting to work/home, going to the city center or just going for a joy ride. Lately my clothing attire, shoes and accessories match my bicycle. I’m loving the feeling of freedom and now seventy percent of my conversations are about bicycles!
It definitely changed my life for the better. I would like to encourage everyone, no matter their age, who had never ridden a bicycle in their life, but would like to. It’s possible! And it’s much easier than you think!
I did have a minor bicycle accident, because I forgot to detach my bicycle’s kickstand which made me fall as soon as I rode onto slightly uneven part of the road. There were a patch and a scratch on the right side of my forehead plus a sort of a natural eyeshadow around my right eye. I fell off my bike, got up and rode it anyway, all dirty, my head swollen, arms and hands scratched. Then I rode to the hospital and back home. On the damn bike. I learnt my lesson. But I stayed relieved there was no injury and I can keep on living. And riding the bike.
Now it’s fall and I’m getting worried I won’t be able to ride bicycle as there is too much snow in Sapporo! Unless I get myself a special winter bike with studded tires!
Also I took JLPT N2 exam and it turns out I passed it! I’ve come to realize that I have to study even more (maybe I’ll even take N1 exam unless they introduce a new examination system), but for now I’m just appreciating the language and reading some manga! 🐙 I’ll be recounting my relationship with Japanese in one of the next posts!
I hope you’re having a nice day!
