A brief update.
At last count, I was the oldest "Clyde" in the Clydesdale/Athena forum. I don't know if that is still the case, but at 73yo, I am about 212-215 lbs, and have been for years!
I have adjusted to this weight, and seem to tolerate it well, although by rights I should be under 200. But I keep active with a weekly exercise program of about 100 miles bicycling, 4-5 hours of swimming, a lot of weight lifting and resistance exercises and several hours of walking.
It seems to suit me, the BP and heart rate and cholesterol, etc., are fine, and I feel great. I am pretty much a solo rider and go my own speed, varying with my mood! We have great MUPS here in the Denver area, and I generally stay off of the streets, except when necessary. I ride a couple of different road bikes, and do some mtn biking on my Spec Rockhopper.
I think this is a really great forum - I always have, and I am truly amazed at the mutual support and the progress folks make.
I wish everyone well, and I do read the posts here from time to time.
Thanks for reading.
