I'm proud to announce that my wife has gone out on a bike ride with me tonight. We've dedicated a helmet to her. She rode my regular commuter, an old Trek 800 with slicks.
She wants a similar bike of her own. I'm building up a Trek 850 with the same set up. Just like my commuter, she wants it set up with lights, pannier rack, frame pack, handlebar bag, water bottle cages -- and a bell. I'm all over it. I expect I'll have that bike up and running for her within the next couple of days. She wants to go riding again tomorrow.
Funny, we had only recently taken a trip to Mackinac Island, where we rode beach cruisers. She seemed to really enjoy that, and now she's taken to riding with me for a bit of exercise.
Anybody else got a spouse or loved one who's taken up riding recently? I can't be the only one.
