That's Motivation: 81 Year Old Bikes 2,000 Miles

That's Motivation: 81 Year Old Bikes 2,000 Miles

Lately, if you're having a hard time getting off your butt to even go for a walk, here's a little motivation for you...

USAToday.com is reporting that Bill Anderson, an 81-year old man from Arizona, plans to complete a 2,000-mile bicycle ride around Arizona's perimeter in 14 to 16 days. He is riding to raise money for Yuma's Crossroads Mission, which provides shelter, meals, showers and clothing to the homeless. Now if that doesn't make going to the gym look like a piece of cake, I don't know what does.

I just finished AIDS/Lifecycle (the 545 mile/7 day bike ride from SF to LA) this past weekend and our oldest participant was 79! I hope that I'm still riding when I get to be that age - truly inspirational.
