I haven't seen a thread on older Clydes and Athenas. Perhaps I have missed it. If there are any other older folks, please introduce yourself.
Are there others out there?
I am 68.7 years old, about 5'11" and am at 215 lbs as of today. A few years back I was at 240 lbs. I ride a Lemond BA (almost 10 years old) a Windsor Leeds roadie, a Specialized Hardrock, and have a beater mtn bike as a trainer in the basement.
My wife is 70.7 years old and rides a Trek hybrid and a Specialized Mtn Bike. She used to have a Cannondale R300 roadie, but never got used to it, even after 600 miles. So we sold it for the hybrid.
I ride about 150 miles per week - today, a friend (66yo) and I did a 40 mile ride in 90F heat. It was a lot of fun.
I am going to be very happy if I can get my weight to 210 pounds and just keep it there. I do a lot of weight lifting, swimming and walking, also, and keep in pretty good muscular shape.
Well, just wanted to say "Hi!" and find any other "older" clydes or Athenas on this forum. I've been a BFN participant for about 7 years now, but have not spent too much time in this forum. It looks as if I have about 75 posts in this forum over the past few years.
Thanks for reading!
