I know you know this
My daughter is just learning to ride a bike at age 29. She tried earlier but took some tumbles as a kid and backed off.
Now—she needs a bike to get around.
I want her to be safe—so of course, I suggested training wheels—this was met with derision…uh, OK, forget that.
But what will she need? Suggestions?
I mentioned a protective helmet—she is on the fence on that—and I wrote a concussion booklet. Yipes. Will raise it again.
A reflective vest? Not sure how much she will be out at nite.
Bike lights—same, but I think the thing has a reflector.
A head lamp? Don’t know—expensive?
How about a water bottle? Yes! This is the desert. The burning sands, etc.
