Bicycle Gift for All Ages

Waking up Christmas morning to find a bicycle under the tree is a memory that lasts a life time!

Receiving a bicycle as a birthday gift also makes for an exciting and memorable moment.Who says the fun has to stop when we become adults?

Our grandparents surprised my brothers with new Schwinn Sting Ray bikes for Christmas in the 1960s. They went everywhere on themnew-bikes-thoughtful-gift-ideas and rode from morning until dark. Many of you who are Baby Boomers remember doing this too.

My husband and I purchased bicycles in our early married life. We would ride through neighborhoods looking at new houses and wondered, “What do people do to afford $35,000 homes?” That sure was a looooong time ago!

When my son was almost one year old, I told my husband I wanted a bicycle with a baby seat for Mother’s Day. Dustin loved riding with me. It was a wonderful way to exercise especially carrying that extra weight–not mine–my baby!

The last bike I received was for my 59th birthday from my mother. It happened to be one of the last gifts she gave me before she passed away. It’s pink because my mother thought it was the perfect color for her daughter! electric-bike-thoughtful-gift-ideaWhen my brother moved in with our step-father to be his caregiver, I thought he could use a break by getting out of the house and getting some exercise.

I searched online and found a like new electric-assist bicycle. Ummm… it probably has been 40 years since my brother has ridden a bike but it’s true what they say… once you learn how to ride a bike, you never forget.

The seller was my brother’s age and said he purchased it to start riding again and the battery operated bike proved helpful. He had joined a bike club and was upgrading to a touring bike.

He was absolutely right because when my brother started riding, he was out of breath, his legs were weak, and he was so thankful that he could turn on the battery to help him up the hills.

The bike travels up to 18 miles an hour with him peddling along. I believe if he had the time, he would ride it from morning until dark! He has told me numerous times, it is the best gift I have ever given him.

There are many bikes to choose from, such as road bikes, touring bikes, mountain bikes, racing bikes, folding bikes, tandem bikes and cruiser bikes. When choosing a bike, pick the best one that fits their needs.  Don’t let age get in the way of riding a bike and feeling like a kid again!

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving. – Albert Einstein
