At 72, Lou Whitney does things not many people at any age can do. Whitney is not only a pioneer in Veterans Motocross racing -- he's a competitor. 

Whitney is a part of the fastest growing division of the sport, and staged the Veterans Motocross Championships in February of 2008.

Although he no longer races, Whitney does another type of riding -- adventure riding. He goes on an annual ride to places like Mexico, the West Coast and Canada. 

He talks to Growing Bolder about his thousand-mile trips and where he plans to go this year.

    Lou,

    Your biking experience sounds exciting. At 64 I started riding. Now have a Honda Shadow. It's been a thrill and hope to be riding for another 20 or so years. The next time you pass that glider port, stop in and get a flight. Having spent the last 20 years flying gliders I can tell you you'll have a hoot. Day job is publishing Workforce50.com with a mission of getting more employers to recognize the value older workers can provide.

    Thanks for the inspiration, gene
