Helmet and Knee Pads

Part of the learning process of riding a bike is wiping out. The kid that is scared to fall off their bike will never learn properly.

A helmet and knee pads are meant to protect you when you fall. When you fall with a helmet and knee pads, you realize that falling is not as bad as it seems. You become more brave, you are not scared to fall. And when you are not scared to fall, you are free to experiment, to fail, to learn.

A lot of us are that kid that’s scared to fall off the bike. And so you don’t end up learning how to ride the bike in the first place.

We need to find our own proverbial helment and knee pads, we need to not fear falling off our bike, and that’s when we’ll grow.
