I've read several posts were your significant does not share your enthusiasm for biking. I've had the same problem. Either my wife does not want to ride at all or she does not want to keep up when she does. I have finally solved my problem. I bought my wife a Yamaha Vino scooter. I commute to work every day. Now she’s waiting outside the building I work at with her scooter when I get off. We have been together, on two wheels, more since she gotten this than we ever have since I took up bike riding. We go shopping, out to eat, and just joy ride around town. I’m telling people that we get 200 mpg with it. She rides it 100 miles while I ride my bike 100 miles with her. Give it a try!
