I am leaving soon for Nashville for a couple days with one of my daughters and her family, and to attend a granddaughter's first viola concert, and will attempt to get to a Target while there and look over and try out the pink bike, if possible. I'll do that as a first step, then also heed the other advice given so far. Thanks so much to you all.
So, are you a bike rider, Anna? I remember once before when I got the "bike bug" receiving great "bike input" on the board, but cannot remember the contributors now. Chile was one, I think. That last Star McDougaller
newsletter got me interested in biking again. If he can do it, so can I at 66! (Of course, he has
had years and years of training and experience.
I know, that even tho' I no longer have pain or problems with the hip I was told I had to have totally replaced or I soon wouldn't be able to walk and would always suffer the horrible pain (I didn't have the hip replacement, followed Dr. McDougall's advice , read his references on "halting, healing, and reversing arthritis", and walked for the past 3 yrs. now w/o a limp or a cane, and totally pain free) , that I am still protective of it--consciously and unconsciously-- guarding against falls or being bumped into, etc. --and I wonder about it in connection with bike riding after all these years. The last time I can remember riding a bike was in the mid-80's when we laughed and had fun on our old-fashioned family bicycle-built-for-two!
Thanks Anna, Goosetracks and serenity. I appreciate all you shared and suggested. --and Goosetracks, what is better with pink than "silver"? My favorite!
