Folding Bike: “It’s My Wheelchair”

I met this lively woman on the bus the other day, and admired her nifty Brompton folding bike.  “Thanks,”  she replied, as she rang the bell for her stop: “It’s my wheelchair.” Huh? How so? “I have a bad foot, and it hurts me to walk,” she explained. “But I can bike!”

She was off the bus and rolling to her next destination before I could catch her name.  Thanks, Brompton-and-bus-riding Undriver, for the inspiration.
