100-Year-Old Man Sets 100km Cycling Record

A 100-year-old Frenchman has set the record for the fastest centenarian to cycle 100 kilometres.  Robert Marchand, an amateur cyclist, finished the distance in 4 hours, 17 minutes, and 27 seconds, with little more than complaints about a sore bottom.

He took to cycling when he first bought a bike in 1978.

His bid for the centenarian record has been certified by the French national cycling federation.
