Amber Dallman gave birth after riding Nice Ride to hospital
|Amber Dallman has the 2013 Hardcore Biker of the Year award locked up, as far as we're concerned.|
Two weeks overdue, a pregnant St. Paul woman named Amber Dallman recently rode a Nice Ride bike from her Macalester-area home to Regions Hospital, where she later gave birth to her daughter, Elise.
From a Fox 9 report:
"I was overdue -- almost two weeks overdue," she recalled. "I wasn't really showing signs of going into labor, so riding the Nice Ride to the hospital was kind of our last-ditch effort to see if something would happen."Dallman, a physical activity coordinator at the Minnesota Department of Health, even uses her bike to give her son rides to daycare, according to a Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal interview with her published last year. And when it's too wintery to bike, she walks and takes the bus.
Dallman described the publicly available bicycle as "a fine way to get there," and she pointed out that they didn't have to pay for parking either.
Talk about walking the walk! (Or, better yet, riding the ride.)
