That bike was my saving grace
Malcolm Norton – Berwick, PA
My first bike to change my life was the Trek 4900 I bought in July of 2006. I had bikes prior to that, but it had been several years since owning one. Especially since all the other bikes were from the big box stores. This was also the first bike I bought on my own. My current girlfriend and I were in the midst of breaking up and that bike was my saving grace. I now had a great way to meet new people and stay active other than the gym. I’ve been gradually adding bikes to my collection and upgrading parts as I break stuff. I still have the 4900, but it’s received a few makeovers since then. The lesson here is that you shouldn’t date someone not willing to try riding.
