Backwards Bicycle – Unlearning A ‘Simple’ Skill

Learning to ride a bicycle takes a bit of time when you’re little but once you get the basics, your skills on the bike progress really quickly. In the video a friend of the presenter (Destin, who has a great website and YouTube channel named Smarter Every Day) makes a bike where turning left, actually turns the wheel to the right. I initially thought to myself, that’d be hard but I’m sure I could handle that with a little practice. Watch the video to find out how long it took Destin to unlearn how to ride a traditional bike and how fast his son was able to do it!
