Just want to spread the happiness. My wife: one who has NEVER understood my interest in cycling, nor enjoyed even a short ride around the block has surprised me. We went to a spring cycling expo at our LBS. She rode one of the new Giant Suede comfort bikes and liked it. I bought it for her and on her first ride, we rode about three miles together. When I was ready to load up the bikes (we drove to a subdivision for her first ride), she said "you go ahead and take your bike and the truck back....I think I'll ride my new bike home" That was another two miles! So, my wife, who has never wanted to ride, did 5 miles on her first ride!
Now the best news: She's trying to find ways to sneak little 20-30 minute rides in after work. I do believe the girl's been bitten!
