My Girlfriends first ride!!!!
Hey everyone, I started riding at the middle of this past summer, i have slowly progressed from 10km rides to a longest of 60, I used to ride a 90's nishiki , just upgraded to a Cannondale from around 1986. I promised my girlfriend that I would try to get a bike that she can ride too.
Monday morning was our first ride together.
We did around 19km, which was plenty for her first. I bought her some LG womens shorts, and she wore a helmet of hers, and a scott jersey I found at a thrift shop for $4, she wore some underarmor tights etc to try and keep warm.
The ride took us about 1.5hours, she was very intimidated by the hills, and scared of her braking system, i heard "omg i dont know how to slow down!!!" several times. At the end of the ride she had lots of fun, and it ended with some hot chocolate to drink, and watching star trek (great movie btw).
I only have one photo of us, she asked that i smudge her face, so decided to see what i would look like with a handlebar moustache.
Anyways, i know this thread is pointless, but just thought i would add one more new biker added to the list! She has agreed to ride with me next spring/summer etc.
