Hello from Massachusetts

It's been decades since I rode a bike and even then it was just around the neighborhood. My older sister passed away last fall and left me her bike. Not a bike you would expect a 70+ YO handicapped woman to ride but a nice hybrid that zooms along with ease.
I try to ride every day building my strength & endurance after quadruple bypass surgery 22 months ago. There is a lot of work to do but it's fun and I feel great after a good ride.
It's mine now but I'll always think of it as my sisters bike.

Welcome aborad. You're right looking at that bike I
wouldn't think that the owner was a lady in her 70's.
While riding, you get to remember her and stay healthy
at the same time; that's an excellent gift from her.
