Up about 2 months ago I couldn't ride a bike (blame the parents!). At 24yr ord I finally brought a bike (mountain, bought off someone on gumtree) with the help of my then boyfriend and learned to cycle. We used to cycle a couple of hours every couple of weeks and I really enjoyed it. we broke up a few weeks ago and I'm now at a loss about the bike. I know nothing about bike maintenance. This is important now as my types are flat and the bike has been sat untouched for a week Because I don't know what to do with it.
anyway, to the point, I really enjoy cycling, and would really like to become a confident cyclist. I dont feel confident going out on my own onto the roads (safety and fear of falling under a car). I've looked at cycle clubs but reading the website details feels like they're speaking another language- aero bars, slicks etc! so I don't feel good enough to go to a club (I know some swim clubs have a minimum standard).
Whats the best way to approach this?
thanks in advance
