Aged 72, Cycles 30,000 Miles


Has Just Finished Ride From California to Blair, Neb.

BLAIR, Nebraska. — John Warner, 72 years old, of San Diego, Cal., who is visiting friends here, has just completed a bicycle trip from California.

When he found himself near the 70-year-old mark, and in poor health, he took up bicycling as a recreation and as a restorative of health, and has ridden more than 30,000 miles on the bicycle, on which he made the journey to Blair.

He says he feels younger than he did ten years before he began the practice.
