    On our ride last Saturday, she broke something.


    The 30-mile mark.


    We did just shy of 31 miles. She did pretty good. Didn't have to walk the bike up any hills nor use her asthma inhaler.

    What a great thread!

    If I were you, I'd buy her whatever she thought she might like - and sort 'em out later...........

    Great story - and it continues.

    My wife used to ride, was a strong rider, used to like it, and I can't get her on her bike any longer.... darn it!

    Another first... in our most recent ride, she set a personal best for pace - 8.5 mph (this includes non-moving time). That's a pace I can almost deal with

    Great thread. Surprise her with the Stella, if it's in your budget. "N+1" you know
