People Who Said They'd Teach ME How to Ride a Bike but Lied

  1. My parents
    They gave up on me because I was too klutzy, but not before posing me with one of the two bikes I would own in my childhood.
  2. My college boyfriend
    For three summers I went on vacation to Hilton Head Island with his family. For three summers he told me we would rent bikes and he would teach me. For three summers his mom and brother and he rented bikes and I ate ice cream while they rode around.
  3. My current boyfriend
    Our first conversation on OkCupid revolved around him taking on the challenge of teaching me. We have been dating for seven months. No bikes have been ridden.
  4. Countless friends have also offered. There is no follow through! I will never learn.
