Couple still cycling at 72 and 92

Feel good story of the day.
A pensioner who clocks up more than 250 miles a week cycling across the Brecon Beacons is proving it is never too late to take up exercise.

Bert Brett, 72, from Merthyr Tydfil, has been cycling for only 10 years, but he has sometimes beaten men half his age in time trials.

He will pick up his 10th consecutive trophy for being the fastest senior citizen in town on Saturday.

His wife Elsie, 92, keeps fit by using an exercise bike at their home.

Most days Mr Brett can be seen pedalling his way over the Brecon Beacons, on to Cardiff and then back home to Merthyr. Read More.
