My first time posting in this forum. I am still too young to qualify.
I imagine you regulars here are super-fit, active, athletic 50+ers, and I hope to join your ranks in not that many years. So I hope you wonít be offended by my question:
My dad is 75 and showing interest in getting a bike. I suppose he learned to ride as a kid, but I donít recall him ever having or riding a bike as an adult.
I should be happy about this. But I confess to feeling a little nervous. Could someone please reassure me that I donít need to be worried about his risk of injury as an older, inexperienced cyclist? My dad is overweight, manages some health issues that are not unusual for 75, and was never an athlete, but is otherwise in fine shape.
He has been to the bike store to check out the Trek Lime, which I suppose might be a good choice for him. (Iím a little agog at the price tag for what it is, but thatís a separate topic.)
Thoughts? Many thanks Ö
