Leah BikeName: Leah Allen
Employee of West End Library

What kind of bike do you have?
A Bianchi blue fixed gear road bike

When did you learn to bike ride?
I’ve been riding a bike since I was a toddler. Riding bikes was a big part of my childhood and during summer vacation I woke up early every morning and rode my bike up and down the block until after sunset.

Have you always loved to bike or have you recently gotten into it?
I’ve always loved my bike. My neighbor across the street and I used to ride bikes all day; racing and doing tricks. It never got old.

oam logoMay is Older Americans Month. Since 1963, our nation has designated this month as a time to celebrate the many contributions of older Americans and to focus attention on staying healthy and active.

From 1963 until 1973, May was referred to as Senior Citizens Month. In May 1974, President Jimmy Carter changed the name to Older Americans Month. 

Each year, the Administration for Community Living, an organization of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, selects a theme for Older Americans Month. This year’s theme, “Safe Today. Healthy Tomorrow,” focuses on injury prevention.

It is never too warm for a new hat!
