LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A 90-year-old World War II veteran is on a mission.

Friday morning, Bert Blevens left Louisville and started his 1,000 mile journey to his condo in Siesta Key – on his recumbent tricycle.

Blevens has been riding for 35 years. He said he made the trek when he was 80 and wants to see if he can do it again.

His son will be going with him. They are expecting the trip to take 20 days.
