Well, you asked nice BUT, you have to leave that damn Rabbit with the 50 group.
Burr 66 12/24/41
I'm 67+ and looking for the post:lurker: for lurkers only.
I have my 50+ jersey, but, I am thinking about putting 70+ badges/decals/embroidery or? on all of my jerseys! I am 70 +. Why not?
Eat your hearts out kids
Bunchakidz! G-e-e-e-e-z, give an old guy a break will ya!?
Let me know when you start a 75+ club!
[ young whippersnappers - not yet 50 - posting to the 50+ forum
can one still ride past 65, 75 or 85? Try us here.
Hello, I'm 66 and my goal is to ride as fast as my riding buddy who is 75. This would be a good thread if we could keep the young'uns out.:)
I see Mr. Corlew has designed a 50+ jersey. How about a 65+ with a clever slogan?
Is this the 56+ thread or is my disxelia acting up again?
Ahh ah......I forgot.
Someone made this a "sticky." But, not at MY request. Likely no one will evere read or post again.
Now Catweazle is going to complain and give us all a lesson on what should and shouldn't be a "sticky."
OK, CW, we are awaiting!
I just looked for a "65" forum???
But maybe we nicer guys can just post on this 65 thread but to keep it from getting to long we need the start a new tread every week.

Of course, being the kind and concerned son that I am I addressed his fears, and sought to allay them a bit.
"Guess you'll be riding a treadlie up and down to the shop, then?"
He gave a bit of a "Hrrmmmpphh!" to that, as I expected he would. But a few days later I saw him wheel one of the bikes out of the shed and sneak around and up the drive with it, so I wandered out.
I got around the front of the house only to see him pedal a few yards, wobble all over the place, and then stagger half way across the yard, red in the face, trying to get off the thing.
"I can't bloody ride that thing! Face facts! I'm past it and I'm useless and ....."
The muttering kept going all the way back up the driveway and into the shed. The face was gettin' kinda redder too. He wasn't really in a mood for conversation at that point in time, so I muttered over the top of his mutterings to say
"Ya know, if it strikes ya fancy to try that again sometime I reckon you oughta let me know. I reckon that seat is a bit too high for ya, and I might have to drop it down so's you can ride the thing!"
Later that day, after Mrs CW and I returned from a visit to our son's house, I saw him wander in to chat with her.
"I'm not gonna tell him" I could overhear him saying "but I tried ring that bike while you were out and it was a bloody disaster! Fell arse over head in the driveway and it hurt so much it took me half an hour to get up again."
I didn't say anything, on account of how he was whispering so loud and not wanting me to hear, but I had a chat with my son about it the next day. Shortly afterwards the old bloke wandered in, only to have his grandson say
"You know, old bloke, there's about half a dozen old chooks in town who ride adult sized trikes and cart baskets around on them for the shopping!"
My goodness! THAT sure sparked another red-faced muttering spasm episode!
I'm kinda expecting him, sometime in the near future, to have a chat about lowering that bike seat down :)
So are we or are we not going to have a 65+ thread? If we are then we have to mean 65+. It's not good for these youngsters to be running riot and posting all over the place. They should be seen but not heard. They should know their place. And that isn't here! :D
Well I am 66 just starting to ride and enjoying the H out of myself doing it. If I could locate a bunch of old geezers to ride with things would be a lot better.
I would post in this thread but, I'm only 62! Maybe next year.
I guess that means that every year there might be a new jersey! I can't wait to get old enough to join this group, maybe the year after next.
We're changing it to 66+ next year, and you DO need a good math refresher course!
I consider 65 year olds as still developing but worthy of sympathetic feelings. Just joined the forum and am working on putting an electric motor in a tapole trike. I'll keep following developments.
OK, the old guys are mouthin' off . . .
How many ladies out there (asides from Mrs. D'Fox and K/zonatandem) are willing to fess up to be more than 65 years 'young' and still pedalin'?
