According to Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant, the World Hour Record for riders aged 65+ was beaten in Alkmaar on Saturday evening. Onne Nijboer, a 66 year-old bike shop owner from Medemblik, improved the mark from 37.4 km to 38.75 km. He was convinced to do it last year by some of his skating friends, and he took up the challenge. For the record attempt, he used a borrowed bike and skinsuit, which he had to return afterwards, before celebrating with beer until 1:30am.
