I did the usual hilly loop from the house this morning. Down to Ski Shores and back. On many occasions while doing this route I have encountered an older woman riding along on her red Bike Friday. I’ll wave and say hi as I’m passing but today I found her stopped by the side of the road. I stopped to check on her. Everything was ok but we chatted for a bit. She’s something of an inspiration out there on the bike. If she’s a day younger than 70 I’d be very surprised. I’d hazard a guess more like mid 70’s. She loves her Bike Friday and though she hasn’t really traveled with it, she’s out there all the time on it. Good for her. I only hope I’m healthy enough to be out riding at her age.
