The paternal unit is being put out to pasture. Not sure exactly how much he weighs, but he's definitely obese, and although active enough to play racquetball and golf a couple of times/week, he hasn't been running in many years. Don't think he's been on a bike since he was my age
As a kid, I used to go with him to the track while he jogged laps, so he's not a *complete* stranger to exercise. Now that he'll have more time, I'd love to get him on a bike and encourage him to get outside more often. He lives right near a bike path for cryin' out loud.
He has gout and one hip has been replaced; other than that he seems to be okay. This morning I saw a Trek 4100 Matrix locked up and I could picture him on something like that. Anybody familiar with this bike?
