IOWA (KRON) — An 89-year-old woman is ready to complete a 421-mile, seven-day ride in Iowa on Friday.
Lucy Bonham is set to finish her second Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa which is a 421-mile ride spread across seven days.
Lucy’s first ride was in 1992 when she was 65-years-old, she dipped her hind wheel in the Missouri River and dipped her front wheel in the Mississippi River. After that experience, she did not want to stop riding.
34 years later, Lucy is “89 and doing fine”.
“I’ve been blessed with good health”, Lucy gets emotional, “When they treat me like I’m something special, I just don’t understand it”.
When kids see her riding her bike they just yell and say, “Oh, there’s Lucy, again!”
