My wife and I recently decided that we were going to get into better shape. Well, it wasn't so much that we decided as much as our doctor told us we needed to lose weigh, or face the dreaded D word. But we DID decided to listen to him, that counts right? So, i looked up some ways to be more active and somewhere along the way i got to biking. Which lead me to this forum. I've read the posts and seen the successes and the advice giving on this part of the forum.
Anyways, I wanted to ask for advice and recommendations for my wife. I think she's a little embarrassed to try the bike at the store. The last time she went with me to look she didn't even want to sit on most of the bikes. Her comment was, "i don't want the bike to break." Now i want to get her a bike but i don't want her to be embarrassed to ride. How do I encourage her and help her find something that she'll be comfortable riding?
