"High Seventies" (and truly inspiring)

Here's another inspiring short clip from Streetfilms. This one profiles Lucette Gilbert, a French woman living in New York who (in her own words) is in her very high seventies...and she still commutes by bike to work. Not only is it inspiring what she has to say about biking but more so in her movements...look at how agile she is as she pushes off and then pedals along. I don't know too many people nearing eighty that look and move that spryly. As I rapidly approach my fiftieth birthday, and sometimes wonder if I am not as crazy as people say I am (I can see it in their looks) because I still ride a bike more than a motorized vehicle, this short clip really offers hope and encouragement. Bicycles are good on so many levels and this is just another example.
