Public invited to help “Bicycle Brent” celebrate 70th Birthday

Brent Carpenter turns 70 this month and the public is invited to help him celebrate.

The birthday bash for “Bicycle Brent” is being held Saturday, April 27 from 2-5 p.m. at Willow Park West.

The party is being sponsored by local insurance agent Josh Barnett and is free to the public. Free t-shirts are being given to the first 100 people who attend.

Barnett said this is not a bicycling event so please leave your bikes at home. However, bring a birthday card and RSVP on the Facebook page if you plan to attend.

Brent is well-known throughout Cache Valley and loved by everyone he comes in contact with. He has been riding his bike on local streets for decades, waving, smiling and honking his horn.

Back in February, Brent stopped in to visit Barnett sporting a black eye after falling off his bike. That prompted the insurance agent to start an online fundraising campaign that raised almost $39,000.
