Bicycle Bumps

Posted by Dinky Mind on Sunday, March 09, 2008 in , , ,

It's been more than a year that I've been driving a car, and more than 4-5 years that I haven't touched a cycle. But today I went to my sista's place and they've got a bicycle. And me, the uncontrollable Dinkum, couldn't stop herself and decided to ride the bike. Okay!!! Everyone prayed and I finally sat on the seat. Whoops!!! That seat was way too tiny. I reminded myself that I wasn't in my car, but on a cycle, which doesn't even have a seat belt! Anyways, I took a deep breath and automatically my hand started closing in a position as if I was holding the car keys, and it reached towards the handles, when I finally realized that I was on the cycle!!! Ufff!!! I closed my eyes and tried to stamp the statement in my Dinky Mind that "I am about to ride a CYCLE." I finally tightened my grip on the handles, glued my feet to the pedals and with Ayat-ul-Kursi on my lips, I finally started riding that poor thing. [Poor, not because it was old or in a bad condition, but because it had to bear me] *sighs*
The funny (and the embarrassing) part came when I decided to stop the cycle and get down. Guess what, I forgot how to slow down a cycle. In my mind, it was 'clutch and break' to reduce the speed. I, the proud owner of Dinky Mind, stretched my left leg out to push the imaginary clutch and was preparing the right one to slightly touch the brakes when I realized I was about to fall down! YIKES!!! I somehow controlled the funny me, tried to ignore all those evil grins, and reminded myself that brakes are under your hands and not near your feet!
Phew! It was a horrible-ist experience.
Ceerio folks =)

Now the real question is - you wear a seat belt in the car? :P

It's because of people like you that clutch plates get worn out :P you're supposed to hit the brakes first, and only use the clutch for shifts and absolute braking.

Ugh, the 'anonymous' was me.

LOL .. I never was able to ride a bicycle (on two wheels) successfully :P

You were better than that :)

~Absar: I do! I feel more secure. And if I don't, I feel incomplete. I'm weird!!! But don't worry, some day I'd just pull the hand brake without using that clutch-brake combination :P

~Asma: Oh really??? Im lucky, I've been promoted from a two-wheeler to a four-wheeler :P
