I'm not quite 43, but I'd like to know when one can know or predict, based on loss of vision, balance, based on some testing procedure, when there is an increased risk of a fall from a 2-wheeler as one ages.
My Mom has been making noises about cycling, she's 78, and this talk scares me to death. She hasn't cycled as long as I can remember.
My personal plan is to keep on cycling until I die, but I don't want to have an incapacitating fall at age 75 for example when my bones are brittle, when there may've been ample warning signs before to give it up and go to a cycle with at least one more wheel.
What would those ample warning signs be? Any gerontologists out there?
