When younger I used to do a lot of cycling, but lately this has decreased. However, I notice that a lot of Parkies people have found this beneficial so I am having a go.
The main problem is that I seem to have lost my confidence - this is a problem my 7 year old grandaughter seems to have inherited from me. Mind you, it didn't help her confidence when she ended up face first in a patch of stinging
nettles!! She is one of the reasons I am trying again.
Still I diverse. Getting on and off the bike seem to be my main problems. Once on, I am alright, apart from the fact that I seem to veer to the right slightly. Aparently I also do this when walking. This is my tremor side. I keep away from traffic. Getting off the bike is more difficult as I find I need something to grab hold of, not my husband, to alight.
I was wondering whether anyone had any tips to boost my confidence. I draw the line at stabilisers!! There are a lot of cycle paths, both by the sea and in the country near where I live, so I am determined to master this lost art.
