It can be done, my wife does it on hers, but you better have some room! It's a great bike, it will cruise down the highway at 65. Hills will slow you down, wind will slow you down. If you are in a hurry, buy a bigger bike. We like the smaller bikes for the trails we ride. We ride the highway too. I wouldn't mind having a bigger bike on the highway, but definitely not as fun on the trails.
