And off she goes.

I was waiting for my wife to pick up some groceries, when this lady came out, lashed her cane to the bike, and rode off.

Just as it should be. From the relaxed position of the arms and the trim legs, I bet she's a long time rider.

I occasionally use a cane after two hip replacements. No problem riding though.

Got to ask. If she can ride a bike why does she need a cane? To beat down attacking dogs?
