- Aubrey Jaftha is 75 years old but still rides his bicycle to work every day

A 75-year-old Cape Town man is still a strong and enthusiastic cyclist who cycles to work every day despite his age.
Aubrey Jaftha, from Mitchells Plain, has been cycling for over 40 years, Daily Voice reports. He works as a handyman at the Animal Welfare Society in Philippi.
To reward his love for cycling, the Pedal Power Association gifted him a brand new bicycle recently.
Aubrey's bicycle ride to work takes about 12 to 15 minutes, Briefly.co.za learned. He cycles even in his free time because he enjoys it.
In an interview, he said he adopted two sons when they were just two days old. He raised them to adulthood but one of them passed away three years ago.
Aubrey added that he still has a Raleigh bicycle that belonged to the son who passed away. His boss, Allan Perrins, said he's a worthy recipient of the brand new set of wheels:
Given that Aubrey cycles from Mitchells Plain to Philippi whenever possible he is a very worthy recipient of this gift which we are certain he will appreciate and not take for granted.
