Guys if you looked at the bikes Specialized will be bringing to the bike demo out at the BikeFest you will notice there are quite a few women specific bikes that are on the list. If you have been trying to get your honey out to take a spin, this is the perfect opportunity!
Often when we are out riding we wil see a guy on a really good mountain bike and his lady on somewhat of a clunker. Totally get that because no one wants to invest in a good bike unless they are sure the person will actually use it, but that ride on the clunker .....with your man who not only might be in really good shape, is on a really good bike AND already has good mountain biking skills .....might not make her clamor for more.
At the BikeFest she could come out, try out a great bike fitted to her by the Specialized team and we'll be leading plenty of rides, I'd be happy to take some beginning ladies out (as would some of our other Fat Tire Foxes) - Specialized will be there from noon until 5 so I suspect with the trading in and out of bikes the opportunity will be there if you want to really give her a taste of mountain biking.
It might not be quite as often but I know we have some ladies who ride whose partners don't....... so bring him along to try out one of the new Specialized bikes - you never know...........he might catch the fever!
