Learning To Ride A Bicycle As Told By Indiana Jones

Because it's the mileage, honey, not the years.

...it's a wonder we even try.

And then there are friends and family. They might mean well...

Via Lucasfilm

And so you humor them.

Via Lucasfilm

...and you step forward to meet the challenge because it's yours and yours alone to master.

Via Lucasfilm

With an air of confidence, you adjust the saddle and swing your leg over the top tube.

Via Lucasfilm

You get a push from a friend, sibling, or parent, and pedal furiously...

Via Lucasfilm

...but ten feet out, you realize you're in trouble...

Via Lucasfilm

...as you pick yourself up, knee scraped and ego bruised.

Via Lucasfilm

Confidence ebbing, you'd rather be dead right now...

Via Lucasfilm

...and some loving reassurances...

Via Lucasfilm

...you're ready to give the bicycle another spin.

Via Lucasfilm

You ride further on your second attempt...

Via Lucasfilm

...but lose your balance...

Via Lucasfilm

...but in misfortunate you've seen the light.

Via Lucasfilm

And after another bit of encouragement...

Via Lucasfilm

...you know what you need to do. No more excuses or delays...

Via Lucasfilm

...because the moment of truth is here and it's time to carpe diem that ish.

Via Lucasfilm

Finding your stride, you pedal forward...

Via Lucasfilm

...and this time, the third time, it sticks! You're upright, perfectly balanced, and transferring weight from side-to-side like a freaking boss. A sense of relief creeps over you...

Via Lucasfilm

Not even sharp, pointy objects that might puncture your tires.

Via Lucasfilm

So relax a bit. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done...

Via Lucasfilm

Hats off to you -- you're now a seasoned bike rider! Tour de France here we come...

Via Lucasfilm

...because once you've learned to ride a bike, you'll never need to do it again.
