According to CNN (this must be #fakenews?!?!), 78 year old great-grandmother, Ethel MacDonald, (not to be confused with the famous anarchist propagandist) has cycled solo more than 10,000 miles across Europe, and North America since 2003.

According to the CNN article – “MacDonald only began cycling in 1979, when she moved town following her divorce and her bike became her main mode of transport.”
“For anyone who wants to follow in her footsteps, her advice is simple. “Just do it.””
In a different article from 2010, Ethel states some of her reasoning for her lifestyle: “Every person not confined inside metal makes for a better community.”
