Elea Acheson on Whidbey Island, 2012.
Cycle Of Grief
Elea Acheson lost her six–year–old son to cancer in 2009. When he died, Elea feared the grief might stop her own life in its tracks. So, to keep moving, she set off alone on her bicycle. She planned to ride from Whidbey Island down the coast to California. She knew it wouldn't be easy, but she didn't expect how much the obstacles — and the unexpected gifts of the road — would shape her journey. Elea speaks with KUOW's Sarah Waller about finding a way through grief on her bicycle.
