We purchased a couple of bikes to leave at the condo for short trips around the neighborhood...to the store, to farmer's market, to a cafe or brewery. Called "City Bikes", these are a hybrid between a road bike and a cruiser type. Sitting up right you can see the traffic, and a few gears to navigate the small hills. We both purchased Felt Bikes - Cafe 7's. As you can see, my husband is quite tall! I've ordered a pannier to use to haul cargo on the back of mine. These bikes are awaiting a reserved spot in our building's garage.
