But where can she park her bike?

I’m an elder and I need a place to walk or ride a bike.

Dear Sir:

I’m an elder and I need a place to walk or ride a bike, to keep my legs in good condition.

I do wear a helmet, although I did spot some younger people not wearing them. Not a good idea in view of the way some drivers signal or turn. I did a general survey in town and was  truly surprised how much bike parking there really is, especially at the grocery stores, and at our library! There’s hope for the environment yet… But there are some places I thought needed bike parking such as the mini-mall and at the hospital.

Maybe I’m short-sighted, but I’d like to see a place to park bikes halfway along the Millennial trail.  A bench doesn’t seem adequate and I’m told they prefer you not to use them, even if you’re half-asleep and you feel like you’re on a packing trip.

That leaves the trees as the only alternative and I’m not fussy about that idea, being a tree and bird lover. I tried walking to town one day and found that it did more harm than good to my legs. The next day I felt like I either needed crutches, or physio at the hospital. I do hope the city will consider a parking space halfway between the east and west of town.

Slyvia Johnson,
