From Ride 2: More Short Fiction About Bicycles (Edited by Keith Snyder) (Typeflow, Inc. 2012)

Marie’s son takes away her driver’s license, saying she isn’t fit for the road anymore. But that isn’t going to keep the 90-something-year-old stuck in her house. She used to ride her bicycle everywhere as a kid so she decides to go for a ride on a bike that her great-granddaughter stores in Marie’s garage. What could go wrong?

This is a delightful story.
