Freehand Cycling

After 2 months of continuous cycling (especially for me who had classes everyday), I finally can cycle without hands!!

Sometimes whenever the road is spacious enough I'll always try to release my hands for a while then grab back the handlebars, eventually I thought I was actually gaining some feeling towards the correct posture and technique of freehand cycling.

And today I managed to do it when I was cycling alone to Yiting's house at Stralsundsvägen, Östra Torn for dinner. I thought my bicycle's gonna topple but it stayed straight for very long, as long as I wanted it to.
I was pretty surprised then, as I'm totally not an expert in cycling, although regularly I cycle to school.

However I have to get my bicycle to a certain speed to keep it gyroscopic, else it will topple or self-steered because of gravitational force, and of course I still can't steer without hand. Let's see if I can do it before my exchange ends. Hehe...

Not to show off, and I know a lot of people can do this, but I just wanna share my happiness for attaining one negligible skill in my life. やった!^^
