    That is so neat. I'll bet he got the stuff for free, and he deserved every bit of it. Pretty good pace, too.

    Wow, he's totally my hero for days when I don't feel like riding. I hope to break that record in 64 years.

    This guy is amazing. I hope I can last that long and keep cycling, while I'm at it.

    Inspiring, and I like the fact that it is the rider who is classic and vintage.

    I wonder if they have a 53-year old fat man category?
    I'd be willing, in that case, to take a shot at it.
    Especially if they had pie afterwards.

    If my memory serves me right, he did L'Eroica one year, was in the video.
    He waited around to kiss some 20-something girl who'd done if for the first time.
