+1when you begin with the seat lowered and both feet on the ground.... put one foot on the pedal that is at about 2 o'clock and when you push forward just step with the bike. do this several times until comfy with it. then try putting the other foot on the pedal as it comes around to 1 o'clock. this sounds kinda strange and may even sound scary but don't try to go too slow. while riding slow seems safer it is tons harder to do. momentum is your friend.
