Now my wife has gone and got herself a roadie, it seems only fitting that it gets ridden on the road. But before that happens, I'd like to be able to take her out on a nice road bike friendly path so she can get the hang of the brifters, realise that the bike will not stop when you put the brakes on, unlike her disc braked MTB.
As far as road goes, I think that probably the safest, easiest bit, would be around Anne Jovis neck of the woods, a Carrum/Seaford to Mordialloc stint, wider bike lanes, dead flat, easy to turn around if needed. (We live that side of town anyway). I have to remember she hasn't been able to ride for the best part of a year, and its less than 10 weeks since the lil fella arrived so it's gotta be a gentle ramp up.
Now as far as discussion goes, Bike paths. What can people recommend, prefer this side of town, but not fussed if we need to travel a little to get to the start of one, needs to be pretty flat and forgiving. whats your local path/trail like ?
Also, reckon the road section I suggested would be the best "beginner proof" section of road to start on?
Thanks everyone and welcome any advice... If I stuff this up, I'm in the doghouse!! j/k
