Are there any 50+'ers here who are into randonneuring? This is something I really hadn't given any thought to until I started riding with a guy who is into it. I tried a couple of the Lone Star Randonneurs' populaires (shorter rides done in the style of randonneuring, to give interested riders a chance to try out brevet style riding, without the long distance).
Today's 163k populaire that I rode was my first 100 mile ride, so I really haven't built up to the distance of brevets yet, but I can see the appeal of this type of riding. Anyone else?
