I have benefited enormously from this program! I could not afford a bicycle, and I was not very knowledgeable about them. I have saved a lot of money on fuel, and I use my car so little. I enjoy the health benefits of bicycling, and I also get to see and interact with my neighborhood. You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
