Hi Rover Owners,
I looked at a rover 8 earlier this week and have read the forum every since. Today I went to test ride it. I left with a helmet in my hands and a rover in layaway.
I am like a litle kid waiting for Christmas.
My sister and her family are very athletic and rode in a charity ride last weekend. They went 35 miles. Next year they intend to go 50. I asked if there was a hundred yard push your bike class but she said no but there was a ten mile ride with no time limt. I have a year to work up to ten miles to go with them next year for ten miles.
I have chronic fatigue syndrome and have lost 45 pounds this year but need to lose about 65 more. I started riding a recumbent exercise bike for 5 minutes last December and now can ride for 55 minutes.
Thanks for all your enthusiasm. I caught it, and when I test rode the bike, I could even start going up hill. I was amazed. I went to get it today because I heard how much you all loved yours and this was the only one they had in stock.
I can't wait to join you all.
PS I live in Saint Louis and saw someone was from Missouri. Are you near here?
