Peace v Lee

I give you credit, you are one of the smartest newbs ever!

1. Pull the seat into place, with the saddle beteen your legs right under your... crotch.

2. Spin in the wheel so that one pedal is in the 3:00 (like a clock) position, as shown in the next picture.

3. Put both(or one) hands on the handrail, fence, or a wall

4. Step on the pedal closest to you. You want the wheel to rotate 1/4-turn backwards. Step on the pedal and pull yourself up, and place your oter foot on your pedal. You should now be on the seat with the wheel underneath you.

5. Hold onto the handrail/wall tightly and lean forward slightly while pedaling slowly.

Keep doing that until you are very comfortable doing so, then try riding away from a wall. At first you may not be able to go very far but slowly and sure ly you will get better. Eventually riding will click, and there will be no end to how far you can go. The you learn to fre mount.

-Excerpted from, with my own modifications from how I learned to ride.
