French cyclist Robert Marchand has ridden 100 kilometres in 4 hours, 17 minutes and 27 seconds.
Doesn’t sound fast? Consider this: Marchand is 100-years-old! Setting off on his Trek racing bike around noon at a track in Lyon, Marchand covered the distance at an average pace of 23.3 kph — not far off the 24.25 kph pace he kept up to set the world hour record for his age group in Switzerland last February.

SF In One Day
Last summer I took the opportunity to visit San Francisco, since I found myself in Calaveras County, just east of the Bay area, where I was visiting our daughter and her boyfriend James in Murphys (read about this visit here). I was traveling with my wife and her cousins, guests from Croatia, so we wanted to give girls a quick tour of San Francisco.
