A Great Cycling Story

Congratulations to Robert Marchand. According to Bicycling.com (here), the 100-year-old rode 100 kilometers (62 miles) in 4 hours, 17 minutes, and 22 seconds, setting a new record for a centenarian. (I don't think there's any truth in rumors that the World Anti-doping Agency is investigating.)

One of the very best things about cycling, in addition to its physical and mental health benefits and the camaraderie with fellow cyclists, is the fact that, like swimming, it's something you can keep doing later in life (as long as you can avoid the pick-up trucks).
