Flute-Toting Cyclist Bridget O'Connell Gilchrist Shares Bikecentennial Memories

Bridget O'Connell Gilchrist started out as an independent Bikecentennial cyclist and was "inducted" as a member of TAEK525 later. Their leader, Karl Schlaich, was hit by a car in Tribune, Kansas, during the trip. The community took them in for a few days while Karl was treated in the hospital.
