Better to let her learn on a track or trail than risk a fall on the road.

There are so many little things that we learn over years of riding (and falling) that we don't always remember to tell someone who is learning to ride. I know I am a horrible teacher.

Don't underestimate the lack of basic understanding of how a bike reacts to different surfaces.

Don't underestimate how bad a teacher you are compared to a good professional teacher.

No way I'd be willing to teach a loved one how to ride. I leave that to the professionals with a clean conscience.
