Some people are billing Octavio Orduño as the “World’s Oldest Cyclist.” Whether it’s true or not, he still deserves props for continuing to cycle though Long Beach California nearly every day just like he’s done for the past 40 years.
Octavio turns 103 on Monday. When he was 100 years old, his wife of 60 years compelled him to trade his two wheeler in for a Torker adult trike. The Califonia DMV also took his drivers license away at that time because the retired aerospace worker was losing his coordination.
It’s good to see human powered transportation even works (or especially works?) for those with limited mobility.
