The Mrs. Bought a bike!
 
We are officially a two bike family. The Mrs. surprised me today when she bought a Trek 7000 to putter around on. How long do you think it will be until she gets the "Fever"?

As soon as she gets that first endorphin rush. Invite her on rides, but don't pressure her and hold the pace to what she can handle. Make it fun for her and you'll get a riding partner for life!:D

I hope you're right. I tried that with my wife. Even tried her out on the back of a tandem (easy pace, short rides, absolutely Stupid Captain Tricks). All to no avail. :(

I wish I could get mine to ride more with me but she poops out on me after about 5 miles. I try to get her to do just one more lap around The Hood, but she stops. I figure I will just take what I can get and keep encouranging her to go 1 more and then one more, ect.
