Not one to sit around, Ward Barnes keeps moving when he’s not working at the Falvey Memorial Library circulation desk or landscaping at his home nearby. In fact, on May 4, Barnes and two of his friends and fellow septuagenarians rode in a 45-mile Five Boro Bike Tour in New York City.

Barnes recounted his experience saying “I did the whole thing without stopping or resting, and on a breakfast of an English muffin and a bowl of Raisin Bran and a glass of water.  I didn’t eat anything the whole 4 hours, and drank only about about 8 ounces of water (which is really stupid).”
