    It would absolutely be worthwhile to record what you can of her story, even if it's just to keep within your family.

      What you read in my comment above is the sum total of what I know about the bike ride.
      As an aside, my grandmother and her siblings, my aunt and uncle, were all well into their 90's and a reporter from the local weekly thought it would be a great story if she could get an interview with three siblings all at such an advanced age. She spent a couple of hours with them writing furiously everything they said. When she had everything she wanted she said that"This will make a great story in next week's Chronicle. To which my grandmother, an elderly Quaker lady, responded, "Oh no! Thee mustn't put that in the paper." And she stuck by it. I guess they were pleased that a young woman showed such an interest in them as to spend a couple of hours listening. The story never ran. More's the pity.

      ...and who, disguised as rambler american, mild mannered commenter for a great Democratic web blog, fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice and the American way.
