St. John’s Resident Fulfills Dream of Riding Motorcycle

Carol Laniak rode a motorcycle for the first time on September 19

Carol Laniak—a resident at the St. John’s Green House Homes in Penfield—rode on a motorcycle for the first time—at age 82.

It happened on September 19. The idea started when her son Mark rode into town from Tucson a couple of months ago.  During his visits with Mom, she kept asking  to go for a ride on his bike.  Knowing that he was headed back to Arizona soon, Carol made Mark commit to a date.

So on Thursday, Mark and Carol rode around the block of their Fellows Road neighborhood. Carol enjoyed it so much, she wanted to go for a second lap.

Watch as Carol’s ride was highlighted by 13WHAM as a recent “Bright Spot” by clicking here.

Afterwards, Carol said about her inaugural ride:  “everyone should try it at least once.”
