Alan Koch; Super-retiree

Posted by on November 14th, 2005 at 7:51 pm

Just wanted to make sure everyone reads this article by Margie Boule in Sunday’s Oregonian. It’s about a retiree named Alan Koch. For his 65th birthday he got a new Bianchi and is in the process of riding his bike on every street in Portland. That is awesome.

It reminds me of one of Eleni’s favorite books titled “Supergrandpa.” It pays tribute to a 66 year-old man who in 1951 finished first in the longest bicycle race in Sweden.

And since I’m mentioning books, there’s a great new one for older cyclists called, “Bike For Life: How to Ride to 100.

Good luck Alan and I’ll see you out there.

Please support BikePortland.
