A bicyclist was born at Century Cycles

Manager Mike Petcher at our Medina store shared this story with us last Tuesday:
Had a great experience at work today teaching someone to ride a bike who had never ridden before. Took the pedals off a bike, had her coast down a grassy slope repeatedly to figure out balancing, put the pedals back on and voila! She is now pedaling happily and deciding which bike she likes best.
What's the big deal? Well, she was 52 years old!
How awesome is that? The bike they used to teach her was the Electra Townie -- a bicycle so easy to ride, it's even patented.
Is there an adult or older child in your life you'd like to teach to ride a bike? Check out this video we posted back in 2009 -- it really works and is the same technique Mike and the Medina crew used.
