Out riding my bikes this week I have ridden over 85 miles. This was done in the week of my 85ths birthday. It gets harder every year, but I have to keep pushing myself because if I stop it could be difficult to restart again. But for me its just nice to think that after over 70 years of cycling that I can still get out and enjoy our ever changing countryside.

Well done Oscar. (I've got an ear worm now of Queen's "I want to ride my bicycle").
