If this little old lady can ride her bike to work, what’s your excuse? [VIDEO]

And if you are one of those people who comes up with endless excuses about why you can't get your ass onto a bicycle and use it to go somewhere, you need to meet Lucette Gilbert , the latest star in Streetfilms ' series on New Yorkers who ride. Gilbert admits to being in her "high 70s," and she has been biking since she was a 7-year-old in France. She and her friends didn't have phones, so if they wanted to talk, they hopped on their bikes and went and found each other. Is it a big deal to still be pedaling at her age? She doesn't think so. "People say, 'Oh you're still biking,' which I find offensive," says Gilbert. "When I can't bike anymore, my body will tell me. But my body keeps telling me, 'Go for it!'"
