This forum was my inspiration for doing a 61 mile ride for my 61st birthday(tomorrow). It was a great ride on an old MTB ... was not sure which would breakdown first ... the old bike or the old man! I was riding back roads and often had to get off the pavement to avoid ag trucks, etc. I was riding along a river thinking it would be flat ... then ran into sand ridges that I had to climb.
I saw a lot of motorcyclist and thought when I was 16, all I had was a bicycle and wanted a motorcycle. At 61, I can afford a motorcycle, but all I want is bike and legs like 16! Guess I am never satisfied.
