August 21 is Senior Citizens Day, and we join with others across the nation in honoring older Americans. We also celebrate that so many older people are choosing to ride a bike! Why ride once you're over 60? Here are five great reasons:
We’re delighted that on the day after Senior Citizens Day, an 83-year-old from Utah will be joining BikeTexas, BikeMN, and NCSL on the 10th Annual NCSL Bipartisan Bike Ride in Minneapolis. We’ve heard that his age is no barrier-- he still loves to ride a bike!
BikeTexas strongly supports the infrastructure that gives our older Texans the confidence to take to a bicycle for the first time in a long time. Our streets should be designed for everyone to use, from age 8 to 80 and beyond! Learn more at biketexas.org/completestreets.
Happy Senior Citizens Day! Let the older people in your life know you appreciate them today-- maybe by inviting them for a bike ride!
