On Sunday, Christina took her freshly built All-City Big Block to the streets. Since this was her first time riding a Fixed Gear bike, and I had suggested that we make her bike a singlespeed with a front brake, but she insisted to try it Fixed before making any decisions. She slowly practiced getting into the toe straps, slowing down with her legs, and making adjusted turns with the toe overlap. After a few minutes of practicing, she just went for it and rode 6 miles through flat, hills, and light traffic. It was a fun day!
BTW… we will get her some proper riding shoes!
