Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I'm 58. Live in Bellingham, Wa. Bought my first race bike 6 years before Lance was born. Bought a full Campy Nuovo Record (first year for Nouvo Record / before Campy brakes) Schwinn Paramount in 1966 for $225. Up from $175 in 1965. Raced for 4 years. Won a state championship. That was probably MUCH easier in 1967 than today. Worked in a bike shop for 4 years. Have done a fair amount of touring. I ride 75-100 miles a week. Have two bikes. One alum. frame / carbon fork commuter with 105 equipment, disc brakes & drop bars and one full carbon road bike with mostly Ultegra 6700 equipment.

Welcome JWA to Bike Forums.
Are you still fast?
I'm the fastest 58 year old guy in my house. I haven't raced in 41 years. I generally ride 20 - 25 miles four times a week. Half hilly, half flat. Usually ride solo & average 15 mph. I'm enjoying riding my own pace which changes frequently.
