This thread is going to go downhill real fast.

That said, dickslap her every time she messes up, then hug her when she does good.

My girlfriend would never ride a bike. She wouldn't want to end up like me. I'm a bad example.

Yeah teaching your chick to ride is a drag, don't get her into riding unless she is really into it and it's something she would start up on her own.

I think I should ask--what kind of riding? I would start with basic road biking, or mountain biking. BMX is rather specialised. It's not that it isn't fun, but I think that I would start her with mountain biking, especially as the MTB has the added value of being able to function as a commute bike. Check out the local CL for something reasonably cheap.

I take it that she does not know how to ride a bike at all?

Whatever you do, DON'T belittle her efforts. If she wants to ride, great. If not, she won't enjoy it.

Get her something cool but slightly girly, like a beach cruiser.

Have her choose the pace, location and type of terrian. My Fiance hadn't biked in many years when I met her, now we bike easier paths together. Don't force the issue and let her choose, trust me you'll be much happier...also remember...not everyone bikes!

my GF is an AVID bike rider (i look like a WIMP compared to her...she rides all Winter here...in Minnesota...and I don't). let her do WHATEVER she wants on the bike...it's a really good source of tansportation, it's healthy, she looks cool (on the right bike), it's just plain bad-ASS...why shouldn't she ride!
