Birthday Century.

Another birthday has come and gone. I am now 63 years old as of June 19th, and I rode the Rochester Area Recumbent Enthusiasts annual rally and used it as my annual "Birthday Century Ride". Total mileage for the day was 102.72 miles.

Here's a short (seven and a half minute) video showing some parts of this annual 80+ mile ride. The first 3 1/2 minutes show some of the peaceful two lane country roads west of Rochester NY along Lake Ontario. The last 3 minutes show snippets of the Genesee River Trail as it follows the river from the Port of Rochester south through the city.

Congrats on the Birthday Century!
Very impressive - not too many other centenarians capable of what you did!
