90 years young Elena Galvez lives alone with her hens in the dusty rural suburb of Cerrillos in Chile. She pedals 18 kms daily to sell her Hens’ Eggs. For her, the only source of income is from the Hens, 4 Cows and a Calf in her house.

Galvez’s mode of transport is her sturdy old bike. Since she was 47 years old, she has turned heads in her small farm community by riding into urban areas to sell produce.. She says,”Its my Friend, My Companion. I am nothing without her”.

She has become a living legend for the locals.
“It’s a treasure. At her age, having her in Cerrillos, with her activity, with what she says,” said neighbor Arturo Pinto. “She’s a woman who’s excellent to have in town.”

Neither the Curves and Hills if Chile roads nor her old age could stop her
from doing her duty.

She is not going to slow down, anytime soon. She proves,”Age is just a number”.
