    In the spirit of Orguasch's "Aren't I handsome" thread and pics, lets show the world who we are, and share some pics!

    I will start:

    Okay, since we are sharing pics, here is me at age 58 on Ride the Rockies. Yes, that is a Spec HR mtn bike! And yes, that was 6 years ago - but Orguasch showed a pic in his 50's, so lets keep this fair! And, yes, it is the same as my Avatar - but, hey, how many good pics do you get in a lifetime? And also a pic of me at 60 at the top of Heartbreak Hill in the Santa Fe Century, 2000, on my Lemond BA.

    Hey, Orguasch - can your photo editor fix your low brightness level? Like this?

    Here I am just before a ride early in the spring of this year when I was 58. Now I am 59, as if that's a big difference.
    How is it that we have let the people who do not believe in the public good be in charge of the public good?

    Mine was way too small, even though it was XXL, so my wife wears it! Sorry. European cut.

    Instead of me and the Bike, This is the sort of terrain we have down on the South Downs. Yes it is a Tandem, And this is 95 miles into the South Downs Way in one day. Only 5 miles to go and this is the second to last hill and you have climbed from the bottom of the valley. South Downs Way? 100 miles, mostly offroad, 10,000 ft of climbing, and only 15 hours of daylight to do it in.

    Looks like a real challenge.

    This is the easy bit, the hard bit is getting your stomach back after going down Butser hill and hitting a dip in the trail at 53 mph.

    South downs way is 95% on trails like this, but being chalk the surface breaks up so is not really a comfortable smooth ride that it looks in the pictures. No climb is too high, only 650 ft above sea level at Max, but the trail keeps dipping down to the bottom of the valleys that are just above sea level and then climbing back up steeply. Good fun for a days ride, but does take a good level of fitness that a lot of the 25-40 year olds just do not have.
