Bud Gerhart is an 86-year-old biking machine who has a need for speed.

For more than 75 years, Bud has considered himself an avid biker. He learned how to ride a bike when he was just 7 years old, and from then on, has found it a passion.

He’s taken his love for biking far from his backyard at Grand Lodge at the Preserve, traveling throughout the plains of Nebraska. Over the years, Bud has traveled the world, taking bikes tours around the rivers in Austria and the mountains of Switzerland, and even a family bike trip to Quebec.

Today, Bud bikes at least 5 miles every day, enjoying the views in and around Lincoln.
