My sister and I bought our 66-yr-old mom a Specialized Crossroads bike for Christmas with full accessories and a helmet. She's ridden bikes all her life but was recently sick and inactive for a year. Yesterday she finally took the bike out for her first ride. She wasn't wearing the helmet, fell getting off the bike, landed on her head and needed stitches. Now she says she isn't going to ride the bike any more. I hate to see her give up so easily. Can anyone suggest any words of encouragement for her?
