For decades, John Overstreet has been known as "Mr. Bike Safety," passing out free helmets, compiling statistics on accidents and pedaling about 100 miles a week in Anne Arundel County. Now, at 80 and slowed by Alzheimer's disease, the facts and figures don't come the way they used to, but he still is out on his blue tricycle every chance he gets -- always with a helmet. Yesterday, at Saw Mill Creek Park in Glen Burnie, where over the years Overstreet biked the paths miles at a time, state and county officials unveiled signs for the new John Overstreet Connector -- a 1.5-mile path that links the Baltimore & Annapolis Trail to the BWI Trail -- to honor a man who taught the basics of bicycle safety.

ORLANDO, Fla. - The hired hands are milling around the barn in the gray light of dawn, getting ready for another day in the saddle, when Jennings Overstreet pulls up. In this rustic corner of Osceola County, Fla., miles from the rush-hour masses swarming to the north, morning is unfolding to an almost-forgotten rhythm amid the smells of sweet hay, leather and damp earth. A dog barks at the stir of activity; the horses snort and shuffle impatiently. Down on Lake Tohopekaliga, in front of the house Overstreet's father built in 1935 for $800, a flock of sandhill cranes feeds noisily.
