Jerry Wethington celebrated his 80th birthday with a ride across the country.

It took six weeks to get from California to Massachusetts. Jerry had a few days off along the way after riding into a dog one day and then some time later slipping in the tub.

He rode his bicycle 2,500 miles of the about 3,400 total.

Jerry made this trip with his grandson.
