I decided to give bike commuting a try 8 months ago since we live four miles from work and two blocks from the Monon Trail. I quickly got hooked and decided I needed one of every model made. My wife began to get concerned when I third bike in three months. Then on a random trip to Target she came upon a pink cruiser and all of a sudden it ended up in "the cart". You know how that happens at Target! On an outing to a nearby restuarant my wife caught a flat and had to ride my rode bike home. I get home later to hear her say, "I think I need a road bike". One trip later to Bicycle Garage Indy and she now has a respectable road bike and we have enjoyed many hours together biking around. All in all, we have ten bikes between the two of us and use them as often as we can. Turns out the bike bug is contagious.
