You know you're a 50+'5 addicted to cycling when: your mother-in-law observes that it is easy to buy clothes for you, because your shirt and trouser sizes have not changed since she first met you almost 40 years ago.
I recall that meeting well. My parents and I had driven to La Jolla to meet my college freshman girlfriend's family. My future mother-in-law's first words were, to my mother: "How long did it take you to make your husband go bald?" I keep telling my sons not to get too attached to their hair, since both of their grandfathers went bald in their late 20s.
