My lady friend hasn't ridden a bike since she crashed her last one as a teenager (so there is a fear issue in play). She is 50 +, and around 180 lbs. Thanks to my influence, she is hesitantly interested in getting into cycling. The important things for her are comfort and security, at least to start with. She would need something suitable for her heavier size. Also something "cute" would be good. I don't think we want to spend more than a grand. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
