My little buddy has been such a supportive wife and an incredible mom to our 3 grown children. She's never been much for riding a bike, but was a great support for me while I raced for 15 years. My racing years are well behind me but my love for biking is still as strong as it was when I first discovered this great sport. She's seen me introduce other over the last few years to trails riding, so last year she thought she might like to try riding a bike with me out on the trails. I put one of my bikes as low as everything would go so she could get a feel for riding a bike again. So for Christmas I decided to get her a bike so she could explore this whole bike riding thing for herself. She's only been on a bike a couple times in the last 45 years so as I tell her it's about taking little steps. So today she came out and did 8 miles, and had a bump or two but had fun. Looking forward to helping her take many more steps as she joins me out on some trails.

If she puts her feet down.

Get her a hub gear - easier to use.

I like that @Zipp2001 . My wife used to enjoy cycling 'traffic free' roads/paths until she came off some years ago and spent 4 days in hospital and never got back on.
We are in Pollensa (majorca) soon and there are apparently good cycle paths so she is going to hire a bike for a few mornings.
