getting my girlfriend into biking
Nice one for getting her into it. Be prepared for a huge rise in biking costs – its two of everything from now on, mrdomino hates it if I out-bling my bike.
I can’t seem to recall many temper tantrums out mtb-ing (I mostly have those off the bike) but I have been known to burst into tears on my road bike – mrdomino has now learnt that a tea stop is obligatory in order to avoid tantrums.Posted 9 years agocoffeekingMember
Did you go with a mtb company to Slovenia CK? or did you wing it?
Winged it. Well, my missus is an ex travel-agent so she enjoys searching for and booking holidays. Flew to Trieste in Italy, drove to Bovec and stayed in the ski village area. All-in cost about £550 each for two weeks, inc lift payments, food, beer etc.
Mctavish – thats some ace blood letting, very impressed.Posted 9 years agonickeggMember
I feel sorry for some of you lot. I love riding with my partner, clearly there must be something wrong with me for wanting to actually spend time with her!
Our rides together are at a slower pace than ones on my own but thats fine with me. She’s never far behind on the descents and just takes everything at her own pace.
She’s crashed a few times as have i, part of the process no?! We actually got into biking at the same time via a holiday to the lakes a few years back. We don’t earn much so bikes are our only extravagance. We talk endlessly about it and in May we’ll be taking our bikes on our honeymoon for our first experience of riding in the Alps.Posted 9 years agowoodsmanMember
A bit of a double edged sword in my recent experience. Second sparklywarts first post.
Think I’ll try for a non-biking girlfriend this time around, good to have a bit of ‘me time’ doing each’s own interests from time to time.
Someone on here may well be taking over my duties!Posted 9 years agoebygommMember
I realise now I was far to enthusiastic when starting biking again.
Should have held back a bit, and got extra encouragement in the form of a nice bike and nice biking kit instead of buying my own!
There appears to have been some seismic movement since I was there 🙂Posted 9 years ago
