took my wife to hole in the fence/first ride
« on: June 21, 2009, 07:50:16 PM »
I took my wife on her first trail ride today at hole in the fence. We made it to marker 16 on the main trail before we turned around. I'm not sure how far that is mileage wise but I'm happy for her she did it on a old Trek 3500 ridgid fork that wasnt shifting that well. I told her if she wants to stick with it I'll buy her a nicer bike so it wouldnt be so hard on her.

good for her Tommy! Did she enjoy it? I know it was HOT today so I dont think anyone would have enjoyed it today... I hope she sticks with it!

That's awesome! My wife is getting back into it after some back problems. We did 1 lap at Wilderness yesterday. Let me know if you'd like to get together for a ride some weekend. I know she's looking for someone to ride with.

There's nothing better then having your spouse share the same interest as their partner, my wife always looks forward on riding with me and the guys.

TN..what time were you there. I took my son between 10 and 12. Did you pass us? There were a lot of cars in the lot but I didnt see a lot of riders.....
My son did great. He drew first blood on Indian. Chain ring cut on the calf. I am very proud!!!!

i was there between 530 and 645..i may of went to far for her but i told her i would turn around whenever she was ready. it's hard for both of us to ride together because of the kids

Wow you were out there late...I'm sure it was hot.
I am a lot like you, with getting back in shape etc....
 Our kids are now 7,7 and 8 so it is easier to find the time to ride. when they were all in diapers it was impossible to get out for a ride.
Hope to see you out there. I am the fastest 260lb guy!. I try to keep up with FE and sanpine once, and got a good feel for where I rank. I've got some work to do.

Keep riding!!
