We enjoyed the great fortune of meeting Hanna and learning more about her Dream Ride. Born in Germany in 1942, Hanna credits this country for saving her life and the lives of her family. She first visited the States at age 18 and has had a dream to tour rural America by bicycle ever since. She told us that she had to wait until she was "footloose and fancy free". At age 72 she reached her goal and left her home near Rochester, Minnesota in May to embark on her two-year travels. She is such a wonderful example of courage and conviction and her "joie de vivre" is unmistakable, a lovely breath of fresh air!
