After reading about the ride for years, a Campbell River physician is finally getting her chance to take part in Vancouver Island’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers annual fundraising bike tour.
“I always was really inspired seeing the picture in the paper of the older women hopping on their bikes (and) riding down the Island,” says Erika Kellerhals.
She had to wait for a few factors in her life to line-up. Chief among them was waiting to be old enough. The Grandmothers to Grandmothers (G2G) has a minimum age of 55, so all the women that are embarking on the three-day day ride from Campbell River to Victoria on Friday are at least 55 years old.
