I haven’t ridden a bike in years. My husband and I started discussing getting bikes so we could start riding and keep moving. I was a bit intimidated at first because I had no interest in a racing type bike. I was so excited when I ran across the beach Cruiser Bikes. We ordered them, (although you can buy them at stores) put them together and I feel really stable and safe riding it. There are a bunch of brands and styles out there.

I’m 58 and my husband is 63 and I recommend this style to anyone in our age group. It’s a more comfortable ride and easier on your back. I love having another option for exercise.

We've been enjoying our cruiser bikes for 10 years! I had rny surgery 8 weeks ago, and getting back on my bike was one of the things I was most looking forward to. We rode around Chicago today and tomorrow we're hitting up a country trail in Indiana! Enjoy the ride!20190831_143656.jpeg

Thanks! Looks like we are in the same neck of the woods.

What kind or brand of bike rack works with these, or do you have a SUV/truck?

Are you in the Chicago area as well?

I use the Allen Sports brand, which holds 3 bikes. It fits on any SUV or car. You can find them at Amazon or Wally World.

Yes, I’m in Geneva/Batavia west of the city. Great bike path up the Fox, I think it goes to Elgin.

Thank you for the brand. Sorry, one more question, do you use the hitch mounted one or trunk? I would like to get away with trunk mounted if possible.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
