The Amazing Bill Cotton

I hope we all can celebrate our birthdays like the incredible Bill Cotton of Bicycle Club of Philadelphia:

"Last year, to celebrate his 69th birthday and the approaching summer solstice, he biked to Cape May and back - 227 miles in 22 hours."

I would love to be able to do this.

But if I was, I still wouldn't!

I have seen Bill Cotton's posts on rec.bicycles.rides, which I don't look at much since I started on Bike Forums. He always had good advice. Never knew he was old.

That's one reason he's amazing. He doesn't dwell on his age. No excuses!
