  • Description

    Alexandru Dreghia, a 76-year-old Rumanian, has arrived in Munich after cycling 2,500 miles (4,000 kilometres) from Bucharest to visit the site of the Olympic Games. Leaving in March, he crossed Yugoslavia, Austria and Italy before reaching Germany.

    However, having visited Munich, he does not intend to stay for the Games--but plans to cycle on through Holland and Belgium to france, where he will watch the Olympics on television in Paris.

    Over the last 30 years he claims to have cycled some 38,000 miles (60,000 kilometres). He says his main keep fit diet on the road is garlic, onions and cheese--which he carries with him on his bicycle loaded high with all the possessions he needs for such trips.
