I took my wife with me on a ride a few weeks ago, on conventional bikes by the way. She was somewhat less than a happy camper and didn't care for the seat at all. We'd still really like to do more stuff together though. She knows how much I enjoy riding and would like to be a part of it.
Yesterday she met a guy that sells recumbents. Today we went to his shop and took a short test ride. He has a tandem as well as a one personf for sale and we rode both. This was my 1st experience on a recumbent and I enjoyed it quite a bit. More importantly the loving wife enjoyed it.
The wife isn't a cyclist, but I think she'd enjoy it if she started. Especially if she was able to ride a bike that didn't provide discomfort down there. I don't know if the tandem is a good idea or the single.
I guess I'm looking for some advice. I would like to continue to ride the Bianchi but would like her to join me. Has anybody else been through this? How did it turn out? What can I do to help?
