    She doesnt harm anyone, she doesnt pollute much. She is a fine representative of the diversity of human endeavor. A little crazy, yes. Respect.

    With all that time on the bike, she probably doesn't have any time to exercise.

    She sounds genuine and honest, she does cycling for the sake of it, not bc she wants to show off. Respect.

    If you love cycling, introverted like me - you can ride forever. Gj for her. I feel like I can ride forever, but I'm stuck in the city.

    "Lael Wilcox puts more miles on her bike every year than most people do on their cars"
    People are too addicted to the car, is what you're saying.
    Bicycle is love, bicycle is life.
