When Rosemary Sorce turned 92-years-old, her daughter Jill knew she deserved a meaningful celebration and a present to help her enjoy this season of life. So, Jill and her husband, Wade, created “The Blessing Bike.”
Rosemary enjoys going on bike rides but has found it more and more difficult and increasingly dangerous as she gets older. Now, her family helping her to be able to zoom around town again.
The bike has a comfortable and safe front seat, which can seat two people. It is steered from a traditional bike seat at the back, operated by another person. It means that Rosemary, and a friend of her choice, can enjoy the sights and sounds of the city without exerting too much energy, or being at the risk of falling off.
Rosemary’s daughter Jill Houser said:
“I was on Facebook and saw a video from Copenhagen. A volunteer built a bike and was taking seniors all over the place, and I was watching the looks on those people’s faces and then looked at my mom on the couch, who I would take out in a wheelchair and then said to Wade, is there any way you can make something like this? And he said like he always does… I think I could make that!”
Wade shared that they found an “old rusted cargo bike” on Craigslist. They then took it all apart, added “wheels and tires and made all the mechanics right.” Lastly, Jill painted it to personalize their gift for Rosemary.
The family has even created a Facebook page for the bike where they document the adventures Rosemary goes on. The page allows fans the chance to reminisce of memories of their own mothers and everyone encourages Jill to soak up this precious time she gets to spend with her young-at-heart mom.
