"Doing fine at 10 x 9," 90-year-old does RAGBRAI for 4th time

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

After a week of riding bikes across the state, many people are now back at work, or at home resting. 

For one RAGBRAI rider, age doesn't stop him from doing what he loves.

90-year-old Clarence Boesenberg bikes almost every day. 

He fell in love with bike riding about 20 years ago after it helped him recover from a knee injury. 

"I average about 250 miles a week," he says. "It keeps me in good health." 

The 90-year-old rode RAGBRAI for the 4th time. He carried a sign on his bike that says, "Doing fine at 10 times 9." 

Boesenberg says,"A lot of them asked are you really 90? I got a lot of comments, and a lot of them say you're my inspiration or I want to be like you when I'm 90." 

Clarence Boesenberg says this year he really enjoyed riding into Washington and seeing their decorations and excitement.
