Built for Two

Ethel Marks, 84, will be making her fourth bicycle tour through Europe, this time on a tandem bicycle with son Steve.  They began the tradition with a ride through southern Europe on separate bikes. However, after Ethel Mark’s bout with shingles (a disease she emphatically encourages all older adults to get vaccinated for), the Marks decided four legs are better than two for this jaunt from Estonia to Lithuania.   While she still carries some pain in her arm from the shingles, she’s not letting it get her down.  Said Ethel Marks of her European adventures, “It’s the most fun thing I’ve ever done in my life.  I just love it.”
