So, first real post, and it's sharing something dumb I did. Picked up my first-ever bike (a lovely '14 America LT) a couple of weeks ago. I have taken the BRC and was only doing rides around the subdivision so I could get used to it. Last ride of the day, pulling into my uphill driveway, trying to maneuver around the car, stalled and fell over. Short story is I wound up dislocating my shoulder and broke the rear turn indicator. Talked to a few riders, they got a good laugh (as they should), and most of them said "don't you know you should put your feet out when you're going that slow?". Well, no, I didn't. Which got me thinking about a couple of things that the BRC didn't teach. The main one that I can think of is dealing with uphill slopes (starting on one, going slow, etc). Anyone have any other things they should teach newbies that they don't? Looking forward to getting back on the bike after I'm all healed up.
