[Impact Story] Learning to Ride a Bike - at 68
Learning to ride a bike — at 68
In Vancouver, the Newcomer Bike Mentorship Program plays matchmaker, helping new arrivals in the city get to know their way around by cycling with some help from local volunteers. When 68-year-old Masha Permyakov moved to Vancouver, she wanted to get to know her new city by biking around town.
