The wife has been talking about riding for several years now, but she never pulled the trigger and did it. Over the weekend she commented she was ready for a bike, gave me specifics on what she wanted, and I ended up getting her a Trek Navigator from my favorite LBS.
Part of me expected it to just sit in the garage and collect dust, but tonight our son wanted to go riding at the park and she asked to come along. We only rode for maybe 2 miles total, but it is a start. She was tired, and her legs are a little numb, she took some Advil so she should be fine by morning.
Most importantly though, she felt like a kid again. She had not ridden a bike in at least 30 years. Hopefully this catches on. I can only hope.
