I'm an exercise person, full disclosure. I've thought about bikes for a while but never pulled the trigger because it's a big time commitment. With Halfbike, I'm getting a bike workout for a fraction of the time. Plus, it works my core, balance, and arms. I love it. Obviously, wear a helmet (I do, except for this vanity pic). And some tips: With a front wheel brake only, speed downhill isn’t your friend, so don’t be afraid to gently apply the brakes as you’re heading downhill. Pedaling uphill, lean over the handlebars. Lastly, be prepared for everyone’s stares. :) -Gerry Hays, 55, Bloomington, IN
