I am pleased to introduce the newest cyclist in the house: Mrs. Doohickie! She was skeptical of getting back on a bike after a fall when she was a kid, but finally decided to try it again.
We bought her a Biria Easy Boarding Top 3. She likes the fact that she doesn't have to swing her leg over the bike, but can simply step through the frame to get on.
The Biria is a pretty nice city bike. It came with fenders and a rack.
We were both delighted to find that riding a bike is just like riding a bike. Once you learn it, you don't forget it. After just a few wobbles at the bike shop, everything came back quickly. She's even quickly learning the 3-speed shifter.
For now, it's just rides around the neighborhood. Maybe eventually we'll take the bike over to the Trinity Trail or do an occasional group ride. But no hurry; just getting her on a bike is a joy.
