Ride With Pride: The Spin Doctor Says: Pair Up Wisely
By Dr. Ruth Westheimer


“The most important consideration is that your partner really likes that wind blowing and seeing new vistas — and does not only ride to please the other person…

“…You must be comfortable enough with your partner that you can say, ‘You are going too fast for me. I can’t keep up with you’…

“…Don’t expect to find a riding partner at a discotheque — that will not work.”

Dr. Ruth Westheimer is a psychosexual therapist and mountain-bike rider of six years.
