Years ago, my scout troop went to Moab, Utah to bike some of the amazing trails there, specifically the world famous Slickrock trail. I was 15 years old. I had an old, rickety bike that sent shockwaves through my body as I hit every bump. Even though the ride was uncomfortable, I fell in love with mountain biking. Mountain biking is something that has always been important to me ever since.
Walmart’s objective is to offer affordable bikes. I believe that noble objective to be the biggest reason why people stop riding bikes. People buy affordable Walmart bikes but they never work well and quickly break down leaving them with what should be a good bike, but which they have no interest in riding. Is it possible to buy a good Walmart bike?
Well dang it. I missed out. Do you ever get that feeling? That regret? I definitely have. Now I have been finding ways to make sure I don’t have any more in the future.
