You can't forget how to ride a bike

After learning to cycle, most people won't forget how to pedal a bike even after decades.

Learning how to cycle requires higher-level thinking.

  • Your brain's motor cortices plan and execute precise muscle control,
  • The cerebellum helps you balance and pedal,
  • The basal ganglia keep these movements smooth.

While we use muscle movement and brain connection in other activities like dancing, sports, and walking, we don' use it all simultaneously like when we cycle.
