    A pic of old gapwedge

    At age 56 I feel I can wear this jersey with pride. I do get "hey!, old fart how ya doing" from some passers by. 6'0" 253 pounds. Jersey looks tighter than it really feels. It is a 3XL from Love2Pedal. Feels fine with plenty of room around the armpits and enough length. Taken today at our LBS.

    pumped a little iron in my time, but need to drop about 50 pounds or so. Just became a grandpa 3 weeks ago, so working on maintaining my health and improving my cardio.

    What the....first grankid? Heck, we just went to a baby shower lastnight. Our 7th grandkid on the way!

    Way I see it, If you keep yourself strong, fit and keep up the mileage, yhou can drop the weight anytime you choose! All them miles, looks like you're on your weigh!

    Congrats on the grandkids. 400 miles per month is going to be a tough one unless I increase my daily rides because I will probably not be as lucky to have the weather and time, but I will try. As for losing the weight any time I choose....yeah...that is a good one. Believe me I am trying.

    Are you ridding the MS 150 at Petit Jean this year?

    Would love to B but I don't have the legs for 2 day event. I am hoping next season if I have a good winter. I still need to get stronger first.

    Thanks ArtO. My wife thinks I am the biggest ****** on a bike. But at my age...I could give a rip.
