Leon Matz is 63 and climbing. The Puyallup resident bikes more than 12,000 miles each year and helped found a club for people who like pedaling uphill, the Puyallup Cyclopaths. He set a goal of bagging the 100 toughest climbs in the U.S. and after a recent trip to Hawaii, he's down to his final 15. He plans to finish sometime next year.
