ZANESVILLE, Ohio- When you go to a retirement home, you don’t expect to see the residents riding motorcycles but, that’s exactly what you would’ve seen at Primrose Retirement Community.

Residents rode along with the Y-City Hogs. The rides started because a resident said she wanted to do something different.

“I have a resident that lives here that always says to me I want to do something wild and crazy, said Sales Director Cindy Clark. “(The resident said) I’m tired of doing the same old thing. She said she’d love to ride a motorcycle and that’s how it started last year.”

Resident Janet Stults said she rode last year and couldn’t wait to ride again this year.

Some people were afraid to get on, but I was the first one on,” said Stults. “I got the short ride. They didn’t realize they could take us around more than once. I had to come back today to go around twice.”

There were over twenty resident riders. The oldest person to get on a bike was a 101 year old.
