- Lucky to have a girlfriend to ride with.
My wife and I have quite a nice riding relationship (fnar…). I’m a cyclist, I ride my bike most days and the large majority of the time it is alone, I quite like this as I like time alone to clear my head. My wife is a runner and swimmer and so generally spends her time doing this, however, she is debating a go at triathlon so once a fortnight or so she will join me which is really good for both of as it pushes me on the climbs (she’s seriously fit, like sub 40 minute 10k fit so flies up them) and pushes her on the flats and descents.
It really does work well.Posted 4 years agomick_rSubscriber
Always mtb’d together since 1991. When she raced elite I was the slower rider, and she’ll always be faster than me downhill.
Gone through 10 years of days out sat in forests swapping solo rides / babysitting / kids rides. Now just starting an interesting phase where both kids are quick and capable enough to all ride together (and only a few years until we are the slower ones I guess….).Posted 4 years agojakeyo1Member

I like having a biking GF… you get birthday/xmas pressies that you actually want and there is no arguing or compromise over holiday destinations (Colorado and Utah this year)
You’re right with that. I got new grips for valentines day this year. Perfect.Posted 4 years agoGolfChickMember
I’ve just lost/losing my OH who rides a bike. I can’t decide if I want one to replace him or not. Some advantages like time together but then I wouldn’t want someone who feels like he can preach to me (unlike the current one). They also may wanna crash the whistler trip next year which is tough luck!Posted 4 years agojulzmMember
I ride with my OH all the time. We go all over the place and its a big part of our lives. Know some other couples that ride together as well. I love going out riding with him, we’re a good team, give good feedback no listen to each other. We also push each other on. I wouldn’t have it any other way, we just have an awesome time all the time.Posted 4 years ago
