I was finally stepping outside my comfort zone learning to ride a bike. The most memorable time in my life was the time my dad taught me how to ride my first bike. At the age of six he taught me the basics of riding a bike. Along with rules that were set in order to help me be responsible with my bike. I learned to ride a bike without training wheels.
Many years back, as a young rider, I participated in a Harley Riders Tour and the experience was big. We were a relatively small pack of young enthusiastic riders with a few older experienced Harley riders. I met Greg, a leader and father, who taught me what I know about a motorcycle rider's safety. Here are 10 tips that helped me and, will help you keep safe while riding on your bike. #1.
It was January 25th, 2015, a beautiful sunny day. Also, it was the day before we were leaving back to America. I didn’t really want to go back since I was having fun in India a lot . Today I really wanted to drive scooty bike, and go all the way to the main street ( in India kids get to practice the scooty bike when their feet touch the ground or with an adult only to the main street ). I asked my older cousin to come with me.
We would have timed tests, which stressed me out even at 6 years old. We would have 5 minutes to complete 100 addition problems. I remember once not finishing one of the tests, and I became very upset at myself. Fast forwarding to sixth grade, I had a math teacher that was very difficult for me to work with. I remember trying to ask questions about concepts I did not understand, but she would always say, “What don’t you understand?” This was a frustrating question because I was completely lost and didn’t understand anything about what we were working on.
I still remember the very exciting things that I have done with my various bikes as a child through to my teenage years. I got my first bicycle when I was about 5 and I don’t remember much about those years but I was still happy to get it. I didn’t really learn to ride a bicycle properly until I was about 8 but I still enjoyed riding all my bicycles and I cherish the experience till this day. My bicycle adventures are memorable and fun because it was cool among my peers to have a bike and because I did some naughty things with some of my bikes that taught me important lessons. Around the age of 9, I went to school with my bicycle even though I was to be taken to school by car.
English class made me feel empty-headed and lost. I never knew what was going on, and I also began not to care; However, when I was placed into Ms. Hightower 's class, everything changed! She gave me confidence in myself, my abilities, and helped me uncover intelligence I never knew I had. My freshman year of high school created my hate for English. My freshman class full of 15-year old 's were forced to read and write essays about the constitution and politics we knew and understood nothing about: It was the most tedious and doltish idea in the world.
I know that he’s just doing this for us to not be late especially that today’s the first day of Senior High School. Isn’t it boring? Anyway, we’ve been coming to school together since we were kids. After all, we were best friends and were also neighbors. We use his motorbike since were in high school.
I begged my mother to get me out of it and she refused and told me to deal with it. Now in New York there is the New York State Test, which is similar to the LEAP. We take it every year and it just so happened in my fifth grade year I had failed it miserably. I was put in a special education class, and was taken away from all my friends for math. It was helpful but very frustrating because the lessons were too easy.
As my interest grew, I took it upon myself to find groups in the community with whom I could ride. I researched starting my own and talked to several bike shop owners and was soon participating in weekly rides with older more experienced groups, which suited my need for a challenge. This also provided learning better riding techniques, or even the process of starting a small business and cycling events. I soon established respect in the cycling community by being the only sixteen year old to ride with these older groups, helping with events, and seeking the advice and wisdom of the more experienced riders. This community involvement helped me place 49 out of 135 in my first long distance race.
Since the lessons encompassed in a textbook is tailored to only the necessary and relevant details, it also helps students understand their lessons better. One can actually say that a textbook is a resource to both teacher and student, but with the growing dependence
