|I do wear a helmet, as a matter of fact, along with other protective gear. But, the fact that you “certainly hope” I wear a helmet is so condescending it makes me want to ride a tricycle completely naked doing doughnuts in your front yard screaming Beastie Boys lyrics at midnight. Trust me, you do not want that. My buttocks are extremely pale and unsightly, especially in moonlight.|
A bike is a super efficient conversion of human energy in to forward motion. But it only works well if your muscles work well, and some time spent setting up your bike can work wonders. If you are not sure what to do phone your local CTC group who will recommend a suitable shop, or invite you along to get set up on one of their rides. If you are buying a new bike CTC has information on types of bikes. Saddle position is most important. The saddle should be horizontal, and not tipped. The old rule taught children to put both feet on the ground from the saddle, but this leaves the saddle a bit low for adults.
