‘Age is no barrier – Live your life’ by Andrea Lysons

We met this sprightly cyclist at River Dunsop whilst out walking the dogs. He stopped and had a lovely little chat with us and we were surprised to learn he was 82 years old no less! He headed off on his bike and we caught up with him again enjoying his sandwich by the river taking in the view. That’s the life!!!
