Norman Ellis Gregory has reportedly joked that long life is a part of his family. The war veteran of Suffolk has recently celebrated his 93rd birthday but he isn’t relying on his luck. He takes a bicycle ride every day to keep his fitness up and records the miles he rode. The previous year, he had clocked up a total of 3500 miles.
He says that he wakes up every day and then brushes, shaves, have breakfast and by 9 he is out cycling. In normal mornings, he ventures out cycling and rides for two hours and then if he feels that he is going good, he sometimes even takes up a third hour.
As he lives in the Suffolk countryside, the area is a bit rolling and is very much approved for a spin. The lanes are quiet and very good for a ride in the tranquility. He is not attempting any world record but even then he does 10-20 miles each day on the cycle and always records the distance in a log. Although he loves being out on his cycle, it is the exercise that it gives him that excites him to come out every day. (more…)
