So my managers said they'd donate £2k to Cancer Research if I learned how to ride a bike, and I'd really like to take up the challenge. Can anyone give me some tips please? Currently recovering from a fall and nursing bruised knees and ego

Fearlessness is an advantage, DP says.
Start off on a grassy area (less painful if you fall) with flat bits and slightly slopey bits.
Learn to use your brakes, gently. If you stop suddenly the momentum will send you off your bike.
Keep on pedalling or you will lose your balance.

Have fun! I learned as an adult and despite being petrified to begin with I LOVE it smile
