Oh, the mental images that would have abounded had you not put up the photo.
Once you learn how to fall off a bike you never forget it (as I think the saying may go).
Whoo hoo! Join the club!
(I have lost nearly 10 lbs since riding my bike everywhere)
I'm with you on that one. I 'foolishly' bought a proper, lovely ladies bike in Belgium when travelling 3 years ago. Sat on it in the shop and then until last week it's spent it's left strapped to the back of the motorhome. OH and W.I. President have offered to teach me how to ride - I have Never ridden a bike - all the time a voice in my head is screaming "But my feét barely touch the ground!!!!" It's never going to happen
Wish me luckOh heaven...support my balance and my gusset
OMG. If getting on involves a stool, don't. I ran into the garbage cans and my sister broke her toe. End of bicycles. Remember, stool = walk, instead.
I've heard once you know how you never forget. Fingers crossed.
This is not true, and I have the scars to prove it.
How about putting on some training wheels... ...you know...
Ya can't have matching bikes ~ you need to put your own special stamp on yours somehow ~ that's what having a bike is all about!
Never a dull moment with you two. Ah well, be glad his mid-life obsession does not run to sports cars!
You will have fun, riding is magic.
You will be fine! The helmet, elbow pads, knee pads, shin guards and leather gloves you will wear will protect most of you in case of a spill. Try not to hit the ground with a hip........Happy cycling!!Ann in Canada
It could be fun. When you get good enough, you can ride it after badgers.
Riding a bike is very good for you, enjoy the ride! I have a friend who rides on a regular basis, she's my age.
You don't have dispraxia, as you clearly know. You're a competient medical care person, you put in IV's you prioritize, you boss people around, I know it was hyperbole. Exercise, as you know, is more important in longevity, self-reported health summary's , and weight loss than anything else. The bike riders look like Benny Hill regulars.
If I, an older, very overweight and not so coordinated female-who has spent my entire life at a desk job, can learn to ride, so can you!! I got a new bike this spring and have been having a blast! After years driving the support vehicle so my husband and son could do bike tours, I said no more- I want to ride too! We are training for a 375km ride that starts in 5 more weeks. I can do it! Just start slow and make sure that someone makes sure that your bike is adjusted properly for the saddle height , etc. It will make a difference for your knees. And for goodness sake, remember to have fun!Barb
It's so wonderful that he includes you in everything...
You can do anything you want to. But wear a helmet.
There are training wheels and if all else fails a bicycle built for two.cheers, parsnip
I bought a Schwinn Cruiser in April and like it very much. Start slowly and steadily. I am 64, so I take more frequent breaks than you would but take them I do --and so should you. My daughter wrote demanding I get a helmet --probably a good idea.
Good luck - and have fun.
I've recently had to give up my cycling days; dodgy knee. Keep to the flat roads.
Hope your matching bikes aren't matching 'Lady Shoppers' with baskets on the front! and you don't end up with thunderthighs like that lady on the right!(I think they were advertising knitting patterns as opposed to the bikes they were riding?). Happy cycling. x
Is this part of the current Tour de France syndrome that is sweeping the country? Don't forget your ultra-stylish padded Lycra shorts!
I get my gears mixed up so my husband has stuck a big smiley face on the small gears, sad face on the big, heavy ones. I blame it on being left handed.
But a tandem would be so much more fun (for us to watch). 'Twould be every bit as guffaw-provoking as Terry Scott and Betty Marsden in 'Carry on Camping'. You could even take turns as to who gazes ahead and who pumps from behind.
If John won't say it, I will: "oo-er, missus!"
You might inspire me to get my bike out of the shed where it lies sad & unused xx
There will have to be photos John...x
Sorry John, but I had quite a chuckle coming up from my tummy when I read about your bike jaunt with your partner. Hope your sit-upon does not get too tender to the touch. Vx
Shirley and I hired bikes in Vancouver and pedalled round Stanley Park. One of the things I liked about my bike was that it had a big comfy seat for my fat arse - not one of those lethal dagger shaped seats invented by some crazed arse torturer. If it's not too late - get Chris to consider this matter. It will make all the difference to your cycling career. A lycra cycling suit is also vital - in dayglo yellow or orange.
I really want a photograph if you two are wearing hot pants too!!!
Getting shape for the wedding suits? Again....when is that?
Don't ride early in the morning! That's my advice after breaking a wrist in sunny Stockholm last year, after all I manage to ride to and from the pub here without hurting anything other than the odd hedge!
Nice pair of choppers.
Lycra shorts.Jane x
Be sure and inform Chris about those Pet Trailers for the dogs.
Accept the gift gracefully and enjoy your first ride.
Having read Jane and Chris's comment above, if you DO wear Lycra thn I expect a photograph!
And with a VERY revealing photo taken of you standing, please - holding the bike, of course.
I read somewhere that cyclists have a higher incidence of testicular cancer. Just the men... obviously
I love comments and will now try very hard to reply to all of themPlease dont be abusive x
