I think this has been covered before , but could not find the thread.
I am 65 my girl friend is 55 and she is irked that she cannot keep up. I don't know if she is just not putting out the effort or truly has a problem. She is in great shape, a runner and a 5 mile walker on days when we don't ride.
So yesterday we rode 25 miles and I was constantly turning around and waiting on her. we were in bed last night and she said she was sorry she was a bit *****y on the ride, but it is just getting to her that she cannot keep up with an old fart.
I know I can just slow down and ride on the big rings but darn it I like to go fast.
Any suggestions that I could pass along to her to help her keep up.
