All of those miles were ridden within The Villages, between County Road 466 and County Road 466A.

For the past 14 years, he has averaged approximately 7,769 miles a year

“Even though I have kept the same 25-mile ride, every year I’m getting slower and, of course, a little older. When I started I was cycling 25 miles in 1 hour and 25 minutes now almost 14 years later it’s taking me 1 hour and 56 minutes. Hopefully, I can have a new goal maybe 150,000 miles,” Vicenti said.
