Spring bike riding

Pictures from a couple of days ago!  Looks like video posting is gone??? Sorry!  You won't hear the wonderful spring peepers going wild with the urge to mate and pass on those genes!

I LOVE that bike! I'm having trouble getting on mine gracefully since I hurt my knee. This would really solve that problem.

That is exactly why I got this bike. The last summer I rode my old one, I fell off about 4 times -- always while mounting or dismounting... my arthritic hip just would not swing over the back. A search of the web revealed these Biria bicycles - http://www.biria.com/ Mine is from their "Easy Boarding Series" .... http://www.biria.com/bicycles/eb/ - 7 gears. I wasn't ready for a tricycle yet, though they do make some cool ones!
I ended up getting mine in Massachusetts on the way to one of our shows. A check of the dealer listings on their web page now has one in Niagara Falls. I highly recommend the bike with the caveat that the original equipment tires were not great quality, and I upgraded after getting a flat on my third ride! I can't walk much more than a mile or so, but I can ride 10-20 miles fairly easily after working up to it each spring! Let me know if you get one!
