|I can get on from this side...|
I kept an eye on my fellow exercisers while they got on and off their machines. Most seemed to be able to mount and dismount from either side. Hmmmmmm. At this point I flashed back to our family vacation this summer. I had noticed then that my kids and I, the family equestrians, all got on our bikes from the left. Only my husband got on from either side. I also remembered that I'd tried to get on the bike from the right side once, and it was awkward as heck. Kinda like a penguin attempting a pole vault.
Fellow equestrians - do you do this??
