I Am A Retiree, And I Ride

Here's another great story from our And I Ride campaign! We are seeking to put a face on cycling in support of a legislative campaign that we are working on this year. You can read the rest of these great bicyclist bios here.

We are still accepting entries, so be sure to read below to find out how to send in your story.

Our next story comes from Cynthia.

Where I Ride: Boston, toured in: Wisconsin, Maine, Pacific north west 
How Often I Ride: Virtually every day

My Story:

Of course we didn't wait for retirement to ride our bikes; we've been car free for many years, so biking has been our chief mode for getting around town, for recreation and for traveling. We love our recumbent bikes (including the tandem) and we enjoy riding with friends on weekends around Boston and surrounding areas. We also enjoy traveling by train and bicycle. Every year we put our bikes on the train and ride to Wisconsin or the Pacific Northwest. An advantage of retirement is that we can take long trips. We've been over the North Cascades in Washington, all over the state of Wisconsin (a great place to bike), and this year we'll be riding up the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon and later across Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Thanks Cynthia!
