Steering a bicycle seems much easier than it is. This is because along with simply turning the handlebars, you also have to lean over into the turn, and the faster you're going, the further over you have to lean. It seems scary at first, but experienced racers can lean their bikes over to almost 45-degrees with no trouble at all. As you ride more, leaning as you turn will feel more and more natural.
