I just want to say thank you to all 50 plussers, I came to that this year and I enjoy it so much.
This is one of these things that made my year one of the best I've ever had.
In 2004 my wife got a bad disease and I'm very happy, she'll "back on the road" in 2006 (that's why I toured alone this year to Barcelona, just to meet her there, some of you may have seen my homepage showing the tour).
Next year we will be together again in the french Alps doing all the "Tour de France"-climbs as we loved it so many years before. And we will finish our tour in Corsica for another 10 days paradise in a small flat on the mediterranian beach.
Personally I am in the shape of my life ( ) and I love riding 120 miles and more without difficulties (hey youngsters, you hear that?).
Concerning to 50+: I love reading those (often self-ironic) grey hair comments and life experienced threads.
p.s.: excuse my bad english
