How to Ride a Bike

Riding a bike is never easy. Learning to ride a bike takes hard work and dedication, especially as an adult. Don’t let that deter you! Follow these simple steps and you’ll be the best bike rider in town in no time.

Step 1)

Remember, it’s all about flat ground and a smooth location when you’re first starting off. Make sure that you choose the best spot in order for you to get the most out of your bike. Ask a trusted friend or companion to help hold you steady. You’d be surprised how much an extra set of hands will come in handy! And please ignore David Schick’s love of puns.

Step 2)

Wearing the appropriate clothes (check out some here!) can make all the difference. Avoid wearing anything too baggy! You don’t want to risk getting anything caught in the pedals or wheels. Skirts are probably not going to be the most comfortable option either. Also, sneakers are definitely the best bet when it comes to foot attire. And never forget a helmet!

Step 3)

The right helmet is the only helmet you should trust. You can never predict an accident. Broken bones are one thing, but a head injury can affect you for the rest of your life. To help you find the perfect helmet, find one that fits snuggly on your head and comes down about an inch above your eyebrows.

Step 4)

Always begin your bike riding experience during the day. David Schick suggests going between the hours of 11 AM and 4 PM, as traffic is usually slower during this time.

Now, we move on to the fun part: mounting your bike and beginning the ride!

Step 5)

A flat surface such as a driveway is the perfect example of the best place to begin riding your bike. The lack of slopes makes it easier for you to get a grip on what you’re doing, without the fear of falling. Coming to a full stop will also be much easier!

Step 6)

Now is the time to adjust the bike seat and test the brakes. Your feet should be able to lie flat on the ground while you’re seated, allowing you to stop yourself before you fall. Testing the brakes gives you a good sense of the amount of pressure you’ll need to use in order to stop yourself when you need to!

Step 7)

Ready? Set? Go, go, go! Now is your time to push yourself off the ground and go! Try to stay balanced for as long as you possibly can. Don’t feel bad if you can’t maintain your balance for more than a few seconds. Be proud of yourself for trying! You’ll get it in no time.

David Schick’s Favorite Passover Recipes

What are some of your favorite pastimes? David Schick enjoys reading, writing, and cooking. With Passover coming up, David Schick wants to share his absolute favorite recipes with you!

 

Why not start with David Schick’s favorite, Matzo Ball Soup? Here’s a recipe that he loves!

Ingredients

-2 (10 ounce) packages matzo crackers

-1/2 cup butter

-3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

-2 onions, minced

-5 ounces matzo meal

-6 eggs

-96 ounces chicken broth

salt and pepper to taste

This soup takes about 55 minutes in total, about 30 minutes of prepping and 25 minutes of cooking! Be sure to follow the directions carefully and enjoy!

  1. Bring a big pot of salted water to a boil.
  2. Crush the matzo crackers into tiny pieces, and add to a decent size bowl. Cover in water and let soak for a few minutes, until soft. Drain off excess water.
  3. Melt butter in a skillet and stir in drained matzos. Stir until mixture is dry and brown in color. Take off the heat and add eggs, salt and pepper (to taste), parsley (yum!), and onions.
  4. Add enough matzo meal to make mixture hold together, but no more than that. Roll one squash ball-size matzo ball. Put matzo ball in the bubbling water to test the mixture. The ball must rise to the top of the water and not break apart. 
  5. In a saucepan, bring chicken broth to a low bubble over decent heat; add balls to broth. Serve soup as the balls rise to the top of the broth.

Enjoy! And remember to check out http://davidschick.info/ for more great recipes!
