Lan Yin "Eiko" Tsai: an inspiration

This is an inspiring story. For the past 26 years Lan Yin "Eiko" Tsai has been biking 150 miles to benefit MS research...and she does it on an old single speed while wearing heels and a dress. With all my rants and raves about the usefulness and importance of a bicycle, and by discourses on my aches and pains (being a middle aged guy on a bike), I have never ridden 150 miles at one time...she's been doing it for 26 years, and was 10 years older than I am now when she started!

"I always try to tell people, whatever you can do, keep doing it, keep doing it," she says. "And that's why I do MS. When I start something, I don't want to just quit." These words could be applied to many things in life, no doubt.

"I went to church, so I always dressed up and would ride my bicycle," she says. "So that's why I do it that way -- I do it that way naturally. That's the way I ride my bike."

I love it. Lycra-free innocence.
