SGSpouse and I went out a few days ago and bought new bicycles. WoooHooo. I feel like a kid at Christmas. These aren't your multi-gear, alloy frame bikes. They are cheap, single speed, pedal brake, heavy steel frame clunkers with baskets and a cup holder and a rear carrying platform. . . everything but a bell or horn.SGSpouse blew all the cartiledge out of her knees a few years ago so had to stop walking with me every day. And my doctor told me I need to stop running because at my age the jarring impact of running is more likely to do harm than good. So . . . this is our solution. We've been riding our throw-back bicycles along the canal and around the neighborhood every day. We live in a neighborhood where grocery stores, drug stores and assorted small businesses are all within about a mile. We sometimes walk to do errands, but you have to be careful not to buy more than you can comfortably carry back. I've already started calculating how much stuff I can load in our bikes.
