Soon-to-be octogenarian Fred Nordstrom feted his birthday with a feat most extraordinaire - riding his bike 80 miles Monday.

Setting off from Park Rapids on the Heartland Trail, he was bound for Walker and back. Then he headed a few more miles north to meet his milestone.


He'd put 6.9 miles on the odometer before breakfast.
