    100 Year Old Man Sets 100K Cycling Record!

    Great story about a centenarian who stayed with it. Hope we're doing half as well in fifty years.

    Check his times. Not too shabby!

    Looks like I'll have to rethink that I'll only ride into my 70s.

    I saw his story in Feb when he broke the hour distance record. He averaged over 14 mph on his metric century - not bad at all.

    Perhaps I will break his record.

    I couldn't have beat him when I was 23 or so, lets see, he is 112 lbs I believe y'all said I am ~2.1 times his weight now ~2 times back then. Both of us couldn't have done that good.
