Lucette Gilbert Has Been Riding Her Bike for 70 Years and She's Still Going Strong! (Video) : TreeHugger via @TreeHugger

Lucette Gilbert Has Been Riding Her Bike for 70 Years and She's Still Going Strong! (Video) "It's so heartwarming to see how many people are biking now." Our friend Elizabeth at Streetfilms has produced another New York City cyclist profile, and this one is very inspiring. Lucette Gilbert tells us about her biking history and why she likes it so much, and her words have the weight of experience: She's in her "very late 70s", in her own words, and she's been moving around on two wheels since she was 7 and living in France. She seems to have great "joie de vivre", and the exercise has no doubt been beneficial to her health. Via Streetfilms .
