This summer I bought a Carolina for my mom to ride around town. She is in her 70's and had been wanting to get back on a bike, although wasn't sure she could ride anymore. She immediately fell in love with the wicker basket... AND, she could ride it! The step-through frame made it easy for her to get on (she is fairly short) and the gears were simple to learn how to use. As the bike is fairly heavy, it's helpful for her to start in a lower gear. She also appreciates the comfortable leather seat! The first time I got her on Carolina she laughed like a kid again... we have so much fun riding together now!! It's great to have found something active my mom and I can do together.
