Success On The Home Front
Last weekend my wife bought a real bike to replace the so-called cruiser which should be called a parker. Living on the west (mountain) side of town real hills couldn't be avoided without driving. Well, all the hills that she was anxious about were mastered and a great time was had. Next step will be overcoming anxiety on downhills but I still remember when I suffered from that.
She got a flat-barred road bike (Giant FCR-3 I think) and put some 'cross tires on it and I think (I try to avoid that) this'll work out well.
