After a hip operation, Gloria ended up in rehabilitation and was eventually introduced to the bikes and Motiview at Vågedalen daycare center in Stavanger. Even though she only has been given a daycare center place two days a week, she puts in an extra day.
- I was allowed to come on Fridays also to ride the bike as I don't disturb anyone. It's very good because cycling does me good and I get stronger in my legs, says the 82-year-old.
She has cycled all her life. In fact, she was no more than 4 years old when she started cycling back home in Australia.
- We lived in the desert in the Barossa Valley outside Adelaide and had to cycle 4 kilometers to school every day. I have cycled a lot throughout my life and can say I have proper cycling legs.
For Gloria, the Motiview library is crucial to the cycling experience.
- There are so many great movies. It is absolutely alpha and omega for me. I could never sit on my bike and stare at the wall. Never! she proclaims with a big smile.
