Max Lynch of Bentonville, Arkansas has a tradition. Each year, for his birthday, he bicycles his age in miles.
This year, for his 64th birthday, he put in a 66-miler.
Lynch started his birthday rides when he turned 50 as part of his recovery from alcoholism. Now he’s a supervisor at Decision Point Inc., a rehabilitation facility in Springdale.
Lynch recommends cycling through the Northwest Arkansas’ countryside to anyone looking for some fresh air, scenery and exercise.
Lynch joked that he might have to go metric for his rides as he gets older, riding his age in kilometers instead of miles.
