ABOUT ME

Myself pictured with my favorite road bike

I started riding a bicycle since 2013. I was 33 in the year 2013. To your surprise, I didn’t know how to make a turn before 33 years old!

My first time I ride a bicycle without those little training wheels on both sides is at 12 years old. That year, I was forced to learn to balance since the bicycle I rode was rented in my elementary school field trip. My schoolmate taught me to put hands on handlebars while pedalling. Yep, I could ride on straight, but never make turns since balancing is not really from hands.

I did not ride a bicycle until I turned 33 years old. In fact, I don’t like exercise before I back to ride! One day, I have an electric folding bike. I found that fun to ride with, so I keep practicing the balance and try making turns and signalling. Although I did fall down several times at the start and even I hurt my left elbow with small bone fracture, I did not give up because riding bike is fun and so useful skills to have.

Now, I have ridden 5 bikes in the last five years. On my cell phone Strava app, up until April 28th of 2018, it shows my all time distance starting from 2014 is 6869km which is about the length of trans-Canada highway. That distance is way above I can imagine for anyone who doesn’t like exercise can achieve! Another amazing thing from cycling is that I lost more than 30 lbs of weight from riding along with dieting. My weight used to keep gaining after 17 years old, but that cut back to my weight at 17 years old and even below that in my last 5 years!
