Darlene Bonkoski is 72 and has been biking since the 1970’s. My love of biking has only progressed as the years have passed, and it brings me immense happiness to be on my bike. I like to ride with my family, mountain biking and road biking. Biking keeps us all connected and having fun together. I’ve entered numerous mountain bike and road bike events over the decades, and have ridden RAGBRAI twice, the most recent being last year. It is my goal to return to South America and mountain bike. Biking is the ideal means to “feel” the countryside.
