Lt Col Luke

90-Year-Old Set Out On 90-Mile Bike Expedition

Miles Luke: “I get bored is I stay in one place”

Miles Luke celebrated his 90th birthday by setting out on a 90-mile bike ride.  Three generations of Lukes joined him for portions to the ride from Monroe, Louisiana through Oak Ridge, Mer Rouge, Bastrop and back to Monroe.  Following his Air Force career, which include assignments as the commander of the Airborne Missile Maintenance Squadrons at Homestead and Barksdale Air Force Bases he worked in State Economic Development. He has also been actively involved in national senior organizations and along with other citizens developed the bike route in Monroe.  He was the selected as Louisiana’s Senior Olympian 17 years ago and is still winning gold medals at he Senior Olympics.  Way to go Miles, you are an example for all of us.
