Hey all, not really sure where this question belongs. But here it goes. My wife does Zumba and some other type of activities to stay fit. She has some very limiting health issues. But she does what she can. She will get on her Mountain bike and go for a few miles with me. I really wished she would ride more.
I am new to the Cycling thing. I love it. I have some rides planned. We are doing a weekend ride in the very early spring...I asked her to be our support vehicle. We would start off from the hotel in the morning riding...she would meet us for our lunch break and the next overnight stop. She is ok with it. She gets all but a few hours to do what she wants while we ride. She is doing it and happy...but almost left out. Was a jerk for asking her?
Is there any other ways to maybe kind of get her involved with bikes in general?
She uses the excuse all the time of "Dallas, you never wait for me..you just ride ahead." I pull ahead 20 or so feet to check an intersection or something. Or she will say "I can tell you are annoyed by having to ride so slow. I can not keep up with you. I don't want you to hold back because I am here". How do I get her to understand I don't care if I am riding a bigwheel...as long as her and I are together. I have even started doing Zumba with her once or twice a month (Easy guys, she has had my man card for a while now).
Can some of you give me some insight or some help with this? Thanks
