    50 Years/50 Laps/50 Klicks

    Happy Birthday to Me! Turned 50 yesterday, to celebrate, went over to Kissena Park and did 50 laps of the velodrome. Managed to get the speed up to 50Kph.

    There's no law that says you have to act your age

    I don't think acting your age is a requirement for the 50+ bunch

    Let's see, 50 kph divided by 1.61 equals ... Hey, that's pretty fast. Congrats on the speed. Now it's time for your 1st colonoscopy (see related thread).

    Happy birthday!!

    We frown on acting one's age. Acting one half to one fourth your age is pretty normal for this crowd. Ask the non-cycling spouses. Spouses... should the plural of spouse be spice?

    Colonoscopy and pie are two requirements for the 50+ after riding your age. Welcome to the 50+ Trackguy.

    The banked walls on the track help, lobbying for a 50 tooth chainring...

    As for medical procedures, already belong to an elite group - men who've had mammogrammes.

    Congratulations!

    May you never act your age.

    Happy Birthday TrackGuy. If you insist on acting your age, you won't find much company around here.

    Maybe after the colonoscopy, he deserve a pie. After all that fasting and cleansing the day before, he would be starved.

    Belated birthday greetings. Sounds like you celebrated in a very cool manner.
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    Happy birthday Trackguy. Kissena park brings back some fond memories of riding that track as a little kid and skinning my knees. I used to live on 165th st. and the LIE. Happy Bday and many more.

    Happy Birthday! My birthday was last week... had to work on my birthday, so no ride then, but I did ride 64 (even though I am only 55) the next day.
