She started as a teenager, at sweet 17 and now, at seventy four, she still uses her bicycle to get around town, equipped with two pannier shopping bags and just three gears. Hear that? Just three gears with hills like these!
Jean has had her current bike for twenty two years and says it’s a bit tough on the hills. While she doesn’t mind doing hills, she doesn’t do punctures and was just dropping it off for repair at the local bike shop.
“That’s my neighbour,” she said, pointing to a less fit man down the street, “he could definitely get out more on his bike.”
That’s the spirit Jean. I hope I’m still riding at seventy four.
