Getting dad on the bike.
After about 20 years of not riding, my dad rediscovered his love of cycling this year and started riding with me.
See, dad rides when I visit, but for the most part the bike hangs in his garage until I go to his house on weekends. He works ten minutes from his house by bike, but he doesn't relish the idea of riding to work. He drives to run errands, drives to work, and drives pretty much everywhere. When I'm there, he's enthusiastic about cycling, but when I'm not it's almost like he doesn't want to be bothered.
Any suggestions on how to help my dad find the same enthusiasm when I'm not there that he has when I am?
