Seniors On Parade

Riding bikes is all the rage now, but not everyone has the mobility and dexterity to balance a moving bike. Bad weather, puddles, pot holes, and dogs that chase anything moving are all in the minds of the good folks of the Knickerbocker Apartments in Bay Village.

So what to do? In our rec room there are several pedal-powered bikes. With the summer here, a parade would be great. The upside is no sunburn, no bumpy sidewalks or distracting ice cream stores. Only shouts from the sidelines cheering the bikers on, resulting in hand waving, just like a real parade. Older folks are fun folks ... and stationary bikes are great!
