    Great to have our own "spot" in the forum. We can certainly get a lot of encouragement from each. I would love to know how many 50 + are really out there.

    You mean on the forum or just "out there?"

    We had 100 self-identify, but I know there are lots more - I know several that did not self-identify, for whatever reason.

    We also have one person, not yet 30, who likes to pretend that he is 50!

    Talk about weird! If I was 30, I would not want to be 50!

    I'm counting down to my 50th birthday in a few months, but I cetainly have more in common with these folks than with the twenty- and thirty-somethings I usually run into around the cycling world. As for "kicking & screaming", not me; I earned every line on my face and every grey hair, and (except for the ones that came from either sheer terror or cosmic stupidity) I had a lot of fun doing it!

    A forum for old people? I thought we already had one, Classic & Vintage.

    I am in with 9 extra years to spare. I can farm or give them to anyone who is a little short in the age catagory.
    This should be a good and well visited forum.

    I just got my first road bike for my 50th birthday. Unfortunately I still think I'm in my 20s (but my body knows better). As a Noobie, I look forward to the commentary in the 50+ forum to enhance the information I read elsewhere.

    Well, I don't feel old, and I am not sure what a "geezer" is, (Dictionary.com says "especially an eccentric old man") and I definitely am not eccentric, but yes, please join us!
