Ah, the big Five-O

Turned fifty today. Rode 53.7 miles and had the obligatory piece of apple pie and ice cream. Now I don't have to be a quiet bystander!

Congrats on both accounts! The same thing happened to me last week. I'm new to riding, so it was my first birthday ride as well. Hope to have many more..........

Happy B'day, at least you got to ride in peace, and celebrate it in a quiet way to your liking. I rode to work only to find my workplace totally decked out for all to see.
