Dark Secrets Cycling Within My Soul.

I have been habouring a deep dark secret for years a self imploding canker of disparity.

It feel as if since childhood I have been mocked.


And it is embarrassing.

My mother was able to achieve this , my husband but not me.

I failed my cycling proficiency test !!

Now I can't drive either but I am the most helpful passenger out , I failed my driving test counts and then has a sudden attack of amnesia. My driving lessons didn't go that well either I remember one lesson .

"I am taking this car to swap it for a new one tommorow it has never had a scratch on it "


Crunch , squeal , rattle , pop.

As a car takes the front off the the now no so perfect learner car I was in.

( it wasn't my fault )

"Oooh I said "

"*****" said the instructor.

Everyone was ok.

But I suspected the transport gods were against me rolling their dice and gambling with my sanity, I tried again and this time when travelling down a windy , tiny pretty lane one of the wheel hit the kerb.


Pop , hiss .

Stop.

Get out the car and stare at a flat.


Then I had to change the flat.

So in conclusion I never learnt to drive but I can change a flat tyre!

So it's not the failure of my driving tests and lessons that sits deep in my soul, it's the fact I never passed my cycling proficiency.

What Olympic dreams could have been mine for the want of a badge.

Awwh sigh .


I don't suppose I can take my cycling profiency age 41 ?

  1. I remember doing this at school, as did my kids, dont think they do it any more. I remember during one of my driving lessons, my instructer had just got a new car, and it had a fault, and the car kept cutting out at very inopportune moments. So after 2 cut outs the instructor stopped the lesson, dropped me at work and went and arranged for another replacement. Dont give up on the driving, I was 40 when I sat and passed my test.
