70 plus? Race Across the County in a Week.

. . Michael Patterson started biking in his 40s and began entering races in his early 60s. Having heard for many years about the 3,000-mile Race Across America—known as the ultimate cycling endurance challenge—he decided that going after the record for the 70-plus age group "would be a reason to look forward to turning 70."
. . In 2012, he and three teammates rode from Oceanside, Calif., to Annapolis, Md., in six days, 13 hours and 13 minutes. The four-man relay team averaged just over 19 miles an hour and set a record for the 70-plus and 60-plus age groups.  Click here for the story
