For 70+ Riders - How DO you Rate Yourself Against the General Population

Well, it looks as if the IE browser/BFN is not going to allow a poll to be posted today. I keep getting a "can not display this page" message.

Here is what I was going to ask in the poll!! Choose all that apply.

Yes, I can get my leg over the saddle

Yes, I can ride the first 20 feet without wobbling all over the place

Yes, I can ride 10 miles without my heart rate zooming to 220 + my age

Yes, I can turn the corner at the end of the block without falling

Yes, I can ride in other than a straight up "hybrid" position

Yes, I know the difference between Shimano and Campagnolo

Yes, I know how to tighten a quick release properly

Whoa! You mean that in 11 years I'll have to be able to do all that AND not hang my tongue out?

Pardon me while I go practice!!
