At the Tour De Los Alamos on Sunday, Sep. 25, David A. Mann, age 75, road the tour for yet another year. He is not only the oldest, but he is now the longest running participant. He held this title with one other person, the recently deceased Dr. Peter J. Lindberg (Nov. 23rd, 1939 – Sep. 13th, 2016).

David and Peter met as doctor patient about 40 years ago and found a common passion in cycling. Their friendship grew over the years and one of their favorite events was the Tour De Los Alamos. Although they didn’t compete every year since they met in 1977, they were usually teammates rather than competitors; even racing together on a tandem bicycle.

This year in remembrance of Peter, David road a tandem bicycle solo with a plaque under the rear seat and photograph of Peter on his back. As the only participant in his age group (75-80) he placed 1st completing the 28 mile circuit with the impressive time of 2 hours and 23 minutes.

Many knew Dr. Peter Lindberg as a caring doctor or loving friend. He was always looking out for the best for just about everyone he knew. He will be missed but not forgotten.
