Your first ride as a geezer, eh? I turned 60 last September and rode my age the next weekend, but in my case that was my longest ever ride (still fairly new to this road-riding gig).

In running, one benchmark for the casual runner is to do a "10K in less than your age" (my last 10K was about 54 minutes), which at least gets easier by a minute a year. "Riding your age" goes in the opposite direction.

At our bike club meeting tonight, riders were talking about how much fun they had on this ride, and the next guy to turn 60 (in May) is already planning his. Here's one more picture. Not a great one, but shows a bit of our terrain.
