I'm fresh on this forum, but not on two wheels. Not pushing 50, I'm hauling it in my trailer! Clipless, fat tires, dual suss, SMALL air on the occasional trail or off the curb during a commute; in the Great Lakes area, weather can be a little rough, but it takes ice or deep snow to keep me off the saddle. Cold is just cold, rain is just wet.
My daughter nears my passion for riding; she would love to ride to school, but it just wouldn't work out, it's not safe for her. She's a 'tween' right now, talks the talk, but we'll see if she walks the walk. She wants to do the ride of silence, and break 25 miles this year. It IS a little tough to see her lip poke out when I have to keep her home w/ our extended family so I can go pay bills in miserable weather, but that's life.
Don't have the time or the room for an SO right now; wouldn't be fair to whatever 'her' it would be, nor would it be fair to my child. My SO is my bike right now.
