About this Article

A wheelchair is not suitable transportation to the dedication of a bike and walking path, says Phyllis Harmon. But supporters will just be glad to see the 96-year old there Friday when they dedicate a Dundee Road path in her honor. The former resident of Wheeling is considered one of the most influential people in the history of American bicycling.
