It’s Not Like Riding a Bike – Great Western Greenway is Wonderful, Nonetheless via @runawayjuno

One of the most excruciating memories from my childhood was riding a bike along Han River with my classmates in elementary school. I must have been 8 or 9 years old. We were going from one end of the city to another. I wasn’t an athletic child. I was a big-sized, dorky and shy book nerd. My playground was a bookstore. My parents taught me how to ride a bike when we went to the park near the river. We didn’t have enough space in our neighborhood to ride a bike. It was a very hilly, small and hectic area where we lived. After graduating from the three-wheeled bike on the rooftop (I have photo proof of this), I’ve never owned a bike. Naturally, crossing the city from one end to the other by a bike was a big challenge for me. I remember looking at the river under the setting sun, feeling left out and stupid. I could get a perfect score in school tests, but I couldn’t ride a bike.
