Grandfather of nine explains why he is cycling across the country this summer

Paul Hatch, 71, has raised five children and has been rewarded with nine grandchildren. While he does not claim to be “a great physical specimen at all,” he has been rewarded with good health thanks to years of healthy eating and exercise.

This summer, he is taking exercise to a whole new level as he rides from Ocean Beach, Calif., to Ocean City, N.J., with the Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure as he strives to raise $10,000 to fight poverty housing.

The Davis Clipper newspaper of Davis County, Utah, sat down with the man who simply considers himself “an average person” to talk about what drives him to tackle this latest challenge. You can read the Clipper’s complete article below:
