Okay, I'm age 63 - until December. I love riding my bike. Sometimes it's a short ride to my girlfriend's and back. And sometimes, it's riding someplace I've never been before and I keep going way too far before I decide it's time to turn around and start heading back. I try to ride at least every single day. Sometimes, it's more than one ride per day.
I don't seem to be able to ride too fast, unless it's going downhill. Mostly, I'm just cranking along enjoying the ride.
But here's the question that comes to mind: I keep seeing all the younger guys in these threads bragging about how many miles they can grind out in a single day, and how many hills they can climb. I realize my age but still, I'm starting to wonder if I shouldn't try to kick it up a notch.
Because this section is aimed at mature guys and gals age 50+, I wonder: What is your motivation, and what are your daily goals? What's your bicycle style???
