What an inspiration! I went to high school with Mr. Blevens' daughter Beth, who is making the second half of the ride.

Hope he comes through our area or even close by when he is coming down, I'll pencil in a ride along for a bit if he allows that. That is, if I can keep up with him.

I had four copies of the original article show up on my desk this week. "This reminded us of you!" I'm not worthy but I was honored. As I've said, if I had spare change I'd invest in Catrike or something, because it is the wave of the future for Baby Boomers.

Thanks for posting this. Mr. Blevens is an inspiration. He looks very healthy and sharp for a 90-year-old. This truly provides motivation to keep on riding!

Thanks for the update!

I currently only have two wheeled bicycles in my stable, but it's clear to me that I'll end up with a three wheeler at some point. For anybody who doesn't want to risk falling over, they make so much sense (and they are a blast to ride - imagine crossing bicycle riding with go carts!).
