My first adult bike was a purple Wal Mart one, not a bad bike, but not super like the one I have now. I was never comfortable on it, couldn't quite reach the ground and felt all shaky. But, now I'm "cooking with gas".. for my upcoming 63rd birthday my wonderful husband bought me a comfort bike complete with soft seat and front shock, aluminum frame and upright handle bars. I am one very grateful woman! I love this new bike and I love riding it. We've been going out to the park and teaching our granddaughter, Anah to ride. She's just starting out and is using training wheels.
We love to ride on Sunday mornings in town when there is very little traffic and are planning an excursion to the Katy Trail that winds along the Missouri river just as soon as the leaves turn colors.
