    As of 08/19/2005, we now have 266 folks who have taken the time to share their 50+ bicycling experiences with others in the thread

    Special Thread For 50+yo Bicyclists

    which I started 08/25/2004, just about a year ago, with the expectation that perhaps we would have ten folks contributing to this thread. This thread has now had 19,077 views!

    WOW was I wrong!

    Thanks to all.

    For anyone who wants to wade through that thread (and I see a lot of "guests" who read that thread completely), there is a wealth of information, and the defeating of many of the stereotypes that younger folks have about 50+ riders.

    Hey, anyone here read the WHOLE thread?

    Even though I've been posting in this forum, I didn't think I should post on the *sticky* thread until I'm actually 50 -- which I will be as of tomorrow. So look for my entry then -- maybe #267!

    So let's see. We're over 50 in people years...wonder what that makes us in "bike years?"

    I always say I'm only 7 and a half in dog years... lol

    Thanks, Roody!

    By the way, though I was born in Indiana, I lived the first ten years of my life in Battle Creek so I feel a connection with you Michigan folks. I wish I could be up there in a few weeks when the weather turns chilly and the leaves begin to turn.

    Happy bday, longhorn. Just remember, once you're over the hill, it doesn't make any difference how far.

    I bought my bike last September, and got around to posting to that thread just before Christmas. For a newbie like me, learning about both cycling and exercising over 50, it was great reading.

    They told me it's ok to post mileage over in the commuting forum, so you'll probably find me there these days.

    Hey, Bud, I'm in the Hill Country so it's one hill after another for me!

    I thought it got easier down the other side.

    I think one of the reasons this forum has taken off for the select Few, if you can call us just a few now, is that we are all mature and talk the same language. Perhaps "Over" mature, and perhaps it is that we don't understand the modern idioms that prevail on other "Younger" forums.
