A 96-year-old Durham woman only had one regret in her life.
"That I never got to ride a motorcycle," said Gerta Campen.
But Campen got that chance Friday.
A high school student recently interviewed Campen for a biography project and learned of Campen's long-overdue wish.
Campen said she's wanted to ride since growing up in Wilmington, watching the sheriff's deputies ride motorcycles.
The non-profit Linkability contacted "Bull City Riders" to make a short, slow, and safe ride possible for her.
"We weren't going fast, cause the wind was blowing, made it feel a little faster. I'd like to go a little faster, but it was great. I just loved it," Campen said.
A dozen students from Durham Public Schools' Durham Performance Learning Center spent part of their day interviewing people at the Durham Center for Senior Life for Linkability's biography project.
Through a grant from Generation United and the AARP Foundation, the students plan to compile the short biographies into a book to be published next year.
It's an inter-generational effort for people of different ages to get to know one another.
Four of the students will go to a leadership conference in Washington in January thanks to AARP.
