I watched a video the other day. Rep. Tammy Duckworth D-Il. spoke on Monday at the National Women’s Bicycling Forum. Many things come to my mind when someone asks what does bicycling mean to you: saving gas, saving shoe leather by riding rather than walking, the feeling of freedom you feel as you pass everything by on your wheels.
I listened to what a bicycle brought to Congresswoman Duckworth-“To go from manning a Blackhawk helicopter — as I used to say, strapping that 20,000-pound machine to my back and flying it— to not being able to even roll over in bed, I needed something. And biking was that something for me.” Watch her remarks from the National Women’s Bicycling Forum on Monday!
