Journalist gets back on his bike - http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/journalist-gets-back-on-his-bike-20100309-pvx3.html
Maybe one of our Australian friends can explain who this is. The article says Keith Dunstan was a long-time columnist in Australia who was famous for bicycling everywhere. It says that at 80 during a bicycle ride in the mountains he found himself to be creaky. ("I reached the top but the next day my knees were creaking like rusty chain.") So he started looking for an electric bicycle, found a small folding bike, and appears to be loving it.
