As posted to rec.misc. bicycle:
I'm taking a "Street Skills for Cyclists" course. The final day of it
is this weekend, and calls for me to complete a 15 mile group ride.
It's bad enough that I'm the only fat rider on a comfort bike in this
group, but an even worse problem is that my bike wobbles when I
attempt to signal. I can't remove my left hand for more than a second
or two without beginning to lose control. Is there an easy solution,
or is it something obvious I am not doing? HELP!
I'm enjoying riding despite all the problems associated with the bike
learning curve. But I am looking forward to the day I don't have to
enjoy it despite beginner's difficulties.
