    Wife Rode Her Age

    [RODE her age. I can't believe I wrote that wrong!]

    We had a great ride on the Avenue of the Giants Monday, as my wife put in her obligatory ride her age trip.

    This is a great ride -- good road, not much traffic (at least in October), gentle hills.













    We even stopped to fuel up:

    Great to have a ride partner that you enjoy riding with. And fantastic scenery

    But reckon it is about time the wfe a newer -more modern model----- Bike that is. Unless you are paying for it. Then it would have to be N+2 just to give you a chance of not slumping over the bar at the rest stops.

    Congrats to the wife but remind her that 50+ is for familiy members aswell. We could do with the inside info on your choice of Pie on rides.

    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    Congratulations to Mrs. TromboneAl.

    Mr. TromboneAl, however, will be required to stay after class and write the word "rode" 500 times on the blackboard.

    Please pass a "well done" to your better half from me as well. From the pics, that appears to be a beautiful route on which to ride one's age.

    I don't see the point. My younger son rides a very similar-looking Centurion Ironman and really likes it, and it's newer than any of my rode bikes. Of course it's pretty easy to ride his age (21) -- I do it once or twice per weekend.

    I liked the original "road her age" caption -- I was going to suggest raising the bar by having her "mountain her age" next.
