The very best to all of you.........a year of lotsa miles, no crashes, cool new gear......above all peace and health.
Riding and aging don't get easier, you just get slower at slowing down.] (FiftyPlus observation inspired by G. Lemond.)
Watched the New Year unfold by television in NY. It's only 10:46 p.m. PST, but it's time for bed for this pair of 50+. Happy New Year, everyone!
Just got home from a NYE gig. I play in (several) bands and I played a party tonight. I have a NYD ride in 5 hours. Good night, happy new year, and I hope that all of you have a wonderful and productive (in whatever way) year in 2008.
Morning all. Hope you enjoyed last nights celebrations- I think I did but NO hangover this morning. Give it a few hours and I'll be out for a ride. In defference to my dehydration- It will probably be a short one though.
Happy new year
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
Went to bed at 9:30.
Weather service says the temp is 2F (-17C), with a wind chill of -13F (-24C) this morning. To me, that is not a pleasurable temperature to be riding on ice and snow.
Our regular gym is closed today, so I downloaded a free 7 day pass to 24 Hour Fitness, and hope to get some swimming in - but likely will have to listen to a sales pitch as the price.
Anyway, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I made it to 2008. What a surprise.
I predict solveg will want to do a prediction thread.

Is there a prediction thread going on? Let's do a prediction thread.
Happy New Year!
Predictions: Obama is president. Some foreigner wins the TdF. The middle east is unstable. Oil prices go up. Insurance prices go up. Taxes do not go down. Ohio State wins the BCS (IhopeIhopeIhope). Global climate change increases, with more Arctic ice melt. My oldest child gets married. A celebrity gets arrested. A celebrity is involved in a sex scandal. A politician is involved in a sex scandal with a person of the same gender. George Bush says something stupid. I fall off my bike. Need any more?
Happy New Year to everyone. Donna and I were in, but fell asleep in front of the TV before the magic moment. That's what happens when you have two small dogs that curl up against you and get comfy- kind of like small portable heaters with fur! Hope it is a great year for everyone.
Happy New Year - Let the games begin - again.
DG will get a new bike, Tom Bombadil will not.
Red Rider will be on the local news.
Denver Fox will discover something on the trails behind his house and it will be very interesting.
Big Pauly's hard drive fills up.
BluesDawg makes further modifications to Uncle Duke
Yen finds the perfect bike gloves
CrossChain finds a creamy chartreuse fixie on the road
Terrierman becomes a vegan
OK, I don't mean to leave anyone out, but my psychic abilities tire me out...
Happy New Year, all! I'm looking forward to hanging out with you all again in '08!
The Amazing Kreskin I ain't, but I predict that Kurt Vonnegut will return from the dead to haunt the 50 Plus Bike Forum...

This weekend (depending on moon) is the Hejira (Islamic) New Year - so once again, Happy New Year to Y'all! Peace and Strength.
I get a 3 day weekend, with morning rides planned each morning. Coldest weather here for the last 30 years - a frost this morning. That's not what I came here for. However, I'll be pining for it in June!
