    1. What type of bikes do 50+ folks ride?
    For my daily commute/shopping a Giant Escape M0 - rugged, with pannier racks front and back and hydraulic disk brakes. Also a Dahon Helios P8 folder (mainly to take on holiday with me) and a Dawes Super Galaxy tourer.

    2. Do you take any special supplements/vitamins/minerals as you have grown older?
    Fish oil to up my "good" cholesterol and mutlivitamins, when I remember (is there something that's good for memory?)

    3. How much do you feel you have "slowed down" if any?
    Quite a bit - 10 to 20% since I've been doing less exercise over the past year or so because of breathing problems.

    4. How long have you been biking? New, around a while, biked all your life?
    Over 50 years. Where I grew up, everyone cycled. I moved away from that flat city to a very hilly one when I was 18, but I didn't learn to drive until I was over 40 and I've never owned a car.

    5. What type of biking do you do? Long rides, touring, short rec rides.
    Nowadays, it's mainly my daily commute.

    6. How often do you bike? Your approximate annual mileage?
    Probably six days a week, but only short distances. Annually about 1000 miles at the moment. Hope to do more when I feel fitter and lots more when I retire in a few years' time.

    7. Do you do any other type of physical activities - weight lifting, skiing, running, etc.?
    One of my knees is too damaged for much weight-bearing activity like running, but I have played in a table-tennis league for many years (much more physical than it sounds to most non-players!).

    If you haven't already, perhaps you might indicate your age. It helps others to see that folks 50+ do great things.
    I'm 57.

    I will turn 65 this October.

    1. What type of bikes do 50+ folks ride?
    Primary bike is a Giant Defy 2 road bike (8 months old). Secondary bike is a Giant Cypress hybrid (11 months old). I had a Giant Sedona ST that I gave to my brother when I bought the Cypress. The Sedona was a birthday gift from my wife for my 63rd birthday after my doctor told me to get off my butt and start doing some type of exercise.


    2. Do you take any special supplements/vitamins/minerals as you have grown older?
    I am on medication for my chronic leukemia and only take B12 to help with my anemia and Potassium to help avoid leg cramps.


    3. How much do you feel you have "slowed down" if any?
    Actually, I think that I have not yet began to slow down. If anything, it's the opposite. I haven't felt this good or been this healthy since I was 40 and in martial arts.


    4. How long have you been biking? New, around a while, biked all your life?
    I started biking again at 63 and started serious biking in April of last year. I used to bike when I was in my late 30's and early 40's to help me keep fit for martial arts. Haven't done martial arts since my back injury when I was 42 and stopped exercising all together.


    5. What type of biking do you do? Long rides, touring, short rec rides.
    I do hard rides on my road bike (15-20 miles) each day in about an hour to an hour and 20 minutes. I do club rides (12 and 18 miles, two Saturdays in the month) and 30 to 40 mile rides on Sundays and Saturdays that I am not club riding. I also sign up for any long distance charity rides that are in my area or in Central Florida.


    6. How often do you bike? Your approximate annual mileage?
    Between both bikes, I have close to 4,500 miles since last July. I average 150 miles a week. The rest of the miles comes from the charity rides.


    7. Do you do any other type of physical activities - weight lifting, skiing, running, etc.?
    Currently no, but I am trying to find some other type of exercise that will help me improve my cycling. I am wanting to increase my endurance and speed, but not in order to keep up with the 20 and 30 year old cyclists.

    Please tell us your age.
    I'm 52

    1. What type of bikes do 50+ folks ride?
    I ride a Giant Defy 2. I bought it a month ago. It's my first bike in about 100 years.

    2. Do you take any special supplements/vitamins/minerals as you have grown older?

    I've taken a multi-vitamin everyday since my teens. I've taken an aspirin everyday for 35 years. I switch around between other supplements.

    3. How much do you feel you have "slowed down" if any?
    Yes and no. I used to smoke and drink a lot. But I've always been a hiker and backpacker. I'm a better 50 year old non-smoking backpacker than I was a 25 year old smoking backpacker but I've never worried about being exceptionally fast.

    4. How long have you been biking? New, around a while, biked all your life?
    30 days...

    5. What type of biking do you do? Long rides, touring, short rec rides.
    I've commuted everyday since I bought the bike. 13 miles a day. I started just as summer was coming in so I'm only getting in a 10 or 15 mile ride early in the morning here in Las Vegas but I can't wait for it to cool down some. I have rather lofty goals and I'm having a blast. I'm thinking about crossing the Escalante country of Utah in October. Touring is absolutely on the horizon.

    6. How often do you bike? Your approximate annual mileage?
    I will surely do 3000/4000 a year. We have exceptional bike trails right outside my door.

    If you haven't already, perhaps you might indicate your age. It helps others to see that folks 50+ do great things.

    Please tell us your age.
    I turn 50 on Saturday...

    1. What type of bikes do 50+ folks ride?
    I have 2 bikes, one a 2005 Mountain bike which is set up as a utility/hybrid, it's due a rebuild this coming winter. The other a 1975 road bike that a neighbour was throwing away, that I rebuilt last year.

    2. Do you take any special supplements/vitamins/minerals as you have grown older?

    No, I should, but generally no.....

    3. How much do you feel you have "slowed down" if any?
    I haven't, I used to be about 15-20kg heavier, getting the weight down a bit (have about another 20kg to go), has allowed me to keep a relatively even keel, in that lower weight and getting older have become more of an equilibrium.


    4. How long have you been biking? New, around a while, biked all your life?
    I biked from the age of 6 until 25 then stopped for a while, started up again around age 45, been doing it ever since.

    5. What type of biking do you do? Long rides, touring, short rec rides.
    Medium recreational rides on the road bike, which spends the winter on a trainer, and a lot of utility riding on the mountain bike...

    6. How often do you bike? Your approximate annual mileage?
    Around 1600 km per year, not that much, but the riding season around here is around 6 months, although I started using the trainer more last fall....

    Welcome Wog, but it seems to me like you have already been in the 50+ forum a long time.

    Enjoy and keep us informed about your n+1 (not your bike).

    3. How much do you feel you have "slowed down" if any?

    I don't think I have slowed down. Cycling has made me fitter and happier.

    Please tell us your age. 53

    1. What type of bikes do 50+ folks ride?
    2009 Giant Defy
    2009 Trek FUel EX8

    2. Do you take any special supplements/vitamins/minerals as you have grown older?
    Multi Vitamin

    3. How much do you feel you have "slowed down" if any?
    None....better shape than I was in my 30's

    4. How long have you been biking? New, around a while, biked all your life?
    Been pretty active my whole life, running, martial arts, biking, etc!

    5. What type of biking do you do? Long rides, touring, short rec rides.
    Long road rides of 50 or miles or more. Also, 15 plus miles of mountain biking!

    6. How often do you bike? Your approximate annual mileage?
    Mountain biking is about 2000 miles a year, and road biking about 5000 miles a year.

    At one point I had weighed in at 250 pounds. I knew I had put on weight but not to that extreme. I am 6-4 so the weight did not make me feel all that bad until I looked at some pictures my wife and I had taken of us in Bermuda. Then I realized, man I have got to take the weight off. I looked puffy and wondered why my clothes had gotten snug. Anyways, I started going to the gym back in 04 and started running and biking more and now weigh 215. This year I road 4 centuries back to back and had a younger guy compliment me on climbing the hills faster than their group. I did feel very good after that and then realized my hard work did not go unnoticed!

    3. How much do you feel you have "slowed down" if any?
    Well thats hard to say in my case. Up until 4 months ago I had been off a bike for 20+ years, so its hard to say I have slowed. I feel myself getting into better shape and really feeling stronge on the bike.


    4. How long have you been biking? New, around a while, biked all your life?
    I rode a lot in high school and all through my college years, but started slowing down in the mid to late 80's until I just stopped riding all together.

    Right now I'm just trying to get out everynight or every other night for 1 hour or better. I have been averaging 15-16 miles in that hour. I have been keeping track of my rides this past month and have rode 18 days out of the month so far totaling 309 miles...

    I'm 51 years old.

    1. What type of bikes do 50+ folks ride?

    A Specialized Crosstrail Sport.

    2. Do you take any special supplements/vitamins/minerals as you have grown older?

    Multivitamins in my morning smoothie.

    3. How much do you feel you have "slowed down" if any?

    Hard to tell, as I was a couch potato most of my life.

    4. How long have you been biking? New, around a while, biked all your life?

    Just a few months now. Quit smoking 4 years ago, gained a lot of weight, became a gym rat, lost the weight, got addicted to exercise instead of smoking. Looking for variety in my workouts, so I bought the bike this spring. Now I'm addicted to riding. Beats the hell out of smoking.

    5. What type of biking do you do? Long rides, touring, short rec rides.

    Long rides, I try to improve my time each ride.

    6. How often do you bike? Your approximate annual mileage?

    I do a 26-mile round trip three days a week. Looking to work my way up to 50 mile rides. I'm near Seattle, so I can ride almost all year long, will probably do 3,000 + this year.

    Please tell us your age. Turned 50 this year

    1. What type of bikes do 50+ folks ride? Don't know about every one but this one ride one of two cross/Hybrid/comfort bikes he owns one a Trek Multitrack 720 the other a specialized the cheap end of both brands!

    2. Do you take any special supplements/vitamins/minerals as you have grown older? I do a multi vit and a number of minerals most of the minerals I take seem to help my over all happy life!

    3. How much do you feel you have "slowed down" if any? No when I first started cycling as a 30 year old I rolled at about 10-13 mph and still do!

    4. How long have you been biking? New, around a while, biked all your life? Well as a kid then I turned 16yo and well. . .! At about 30 I was trying to lose weight (was a fatty all my life) and got in to biking for an additional form of exercise. Move from flat Western KS to less flat Southeast KS and stopped till I found that my wieight was 290 and started sping 2010 to ride on and off and this summer due to the heat have cycled more cause it is cooler than walking!

    5. What type of biking do you do? Long rides, touring, short rec rides. I have done a century in he past most now are 20 miles or less. Any kind of bike ride is fun so . . .!

    6. How often do you bike? Your approximate annual mileage? 3-6 days a week depending on time energy and life! As for annual mileage never have tracked it but back in the day it would have been 20 ish miles/day from april to Sept averaging 5 days/week. I have started tracking August and am going to attempt to recon July!

    Well, I used to race (USCF Junior, Cat 3 as well as Collegiate) so I'd have to say I've slowed down a lot. But I still have fun riding and try to keep my performance in the "here and now" and not compare to my racer-boy days. It takes me longer to warm up, longer to recover and I developed exercise-induced asthma which doesn't help.

    4. How long have you been biking? New, around a while, biked all your life?
    All my life. I got seriously into road riding at 15. I have yet to ride a mountain bike, so I guess I'll always be a roadie.

    5. What type of biking do you do? Long rides, touring, short rec rides.
    These days I'd say fitness riding. I still try to ride with some sort of "training goal" in mind - intervals, recovery, hill sprints, whatever, and just compete with myself.

    6. How often do you bike? Your approximate annual mileage?
    Not as often as I'd like! Probably 4 days a week. Mileage varies. I try to ride as far as I can based on the time I have available - usually about an hour during the week and longer on the weekends.

    7. Do you do any other type of physical activities - weight lifting, skiing, running, etc.?
    Strength training two or three days per week. I was swimming for a number of years (though I'm not a swimmer), but stopped last year because the pool fees were getting expensive. Swimming was very relaxing and was good for "active recovery".

    We have had two months rain here so I am not getting much riding. I do ride on the trainer (hate it). Still get in the gym three days a week and do a little city riding between drops.

    Sure be happy when I can do my 20 miles three days a week again.
