    50+'s wants to know

    Is geratol considered an illegal biking drug?

    I had to do it since Denvfox said that we need to put the 50+ in our post.

    Since you made a reference to biking in the body of your post, you didn't really need to reference 50+ in the title.

    Good question, though.

    Asking about how 50+ers deal with neighbors who power wash their pick-up trucks in their driveway at 8:00 on a Sunday morning would have required, "How do 50+'rs who bicycle", in the title.

    "Lance Armstrong Suspended in Tour de Florida Trials"; Associated Press; June 23, 2057: In yet another embarassing turn of events, Mr. Armstrong was again removed from the Senior Age riding team.

    "I do not need Geritol, and I don't know who put the Geritol in my water bottles", stated the professional bicyclist for over half a century.

    The governing body for the Tour de Florida event was not moved by Mr. Armstrong's statements, based on the discovery of three empty bottles of the illegal stimulant in Mr. Armstrong's SAG vehicle. A representative of the governing body was quoted as saying that Mr. Armstrong's blood level "has more iron than Tiger Woods' golf bag.

    Geritol has iron. Males our age that eat beef should avoid multivitamins with iron.

    Remember, Geritol is Lotireg spelled backwards!

    OK, does anyone get this? This is WAY back.

    I keep thinking about this as I remember the ancient "Serutan" ads!

    I've got some really bad news for you!

    "The Government quite rightly went to court to make Carter's Little Liver Pills stop implying that they had anything to do with liver function (they are now advertised as a laxative)."

    And their new name is Carter's Little Pills!

    Two decades ago, when we were only in our 50s, we were known as the 'Geritol racing team'! Really!!!

    Poor old Lance can't get a break if it's not Geratol it's doculax, tylenol, or beano.

    With all this talk about cleaning up racing that I have been reading I keep wondering why they just don't get some good ole clorox and a little non-scented tide detergent and throw the kits into the wash.

    I am going to get this posting figured out but I can be slow. Now I know that if I mention biking in my post I don't have to use the 50+ in the title.

    Serutan spelled backwards is "Natures", a banned substance by the UCI!

    breaks/brakes, loose/lose, hosing/housing, and now geratol/geritol! BikeForums needs SpellChecker police.

    I want to state, for the record, that I have never used performance-enhancing drugs like Geritol. http://www.geritol.com/ Can I get another refill on my coffee, please? Yum, caffeine.

    Relax... Neither Geritol nor Vitameatavegimin is even on the list, unless you drink so much that you get pulled over for DWI.

    Before Doping Control knocks on your door, you can check all your meds at USADA's Drug Reference Online:
