George,  Tell your wife about Women Bike Chicago's Day of Dialogue and Demonstration scheduled for April 12, 2014 at Dvorak Park from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  We will be posting an event on the Chainlink soon with more information.    We have panel discussion put on by women to help other women become comfortable riding bikes.  We even bring a bunch of our own bikes so others can try riding them to see what they like.

Quit spamming groups all up in here.  It is in bad taste; especially when you are posting the items for sale in a bike shops group.

 

Stop being an a-hole.
