One of my favorite Christmas memories was waking up to a shiny red and white bike on Christmas morning - thank you Santa!!
I love the style of these Suede DX Coasting Bikes by Shimano.
SUEDE COASTING w SERIES - The Suede Coasting W marries Giant’s much-admired Suede bike with Shimano’s 3-speed automatic-shifting Coasting technology. Meant for women who prefer relaxing travel—those for whom the journey is as important as the destination. Meander at will.
It retails at about $700.00 to $800.00 but there are more in the "Suede" series that are priced lower - anywhere from $380.00 and up. One other thing - these particular bikes are designed just for women!!
P.S. Using a bicycle to commute one way 4 days per week for 4 miles saves 54 gallons of gas a year!!
