    #@*^@*** 200 ***@#*&#

    We now have 200 folks who have identified themselves as 50+ members!

    Who would have thunk?

    Sort of amazing to me.

    Hard to tell. A big impetus came from the thread about the kryptonite lock you could open with a ball point pen. Seemingly 1000's of folks joined BFN at that time.

    But, we have had a number of folks who stated that they joined because of the 50+ forum, and they really liked the idea of the 50+ forum, especially some folks starting or returning to bicycling.

    I know there are a lot more folks in the forum who are 50+, but for whatever reason don't care to identify themselves.

    Anyway, for me this has been a lot of fun - seeing if we can get this 50+ forum off the ground. I think we have done that.

    Interesting.

    I just got a pm this morning stating:


    Meaningless Numbers

    I may have indicated that I am 50+ (an therefore included in your total of 50+ riders) but I am still against the 50+ thread and will not post there although I may read the posts. I really haven't seen anything in the 50+ area that couldn't be posted elsewhere. If someone has a question, I think it ought to be posted to a non-age or sex-related sub-forum area.

    Sorry, but I refuse to grow old.
    FWIW, this person HAS posted to the 50+ forum.

    Go figure.

    I'm halfway there- 25 on Sunday. I can only hope that I'll still be flying along the country roads of Central Indiana at you guys' age. Much respect to all of you!

    Isn't Eddie Merckx 59 now? I wouldn't try to keep up with him. I'd bet he'd be polite enough to wait for me though.

    I like this forum. Most people posting can spell and most actually have something interesting to say. Way to go Fox.

    [QUOTE=DnvrFox]Interesting.

    The quote ended with "Sorry, but I refuse to grow old." I guess he dosen't get that that's "exactly" why many of us 50+ers keep pump'n the peddle's, keep get'n mature (not) old and enjoying the encouragement & fellowship of other "mature" folks.

    Fifty plus forum is good. I have passed a lot of mile stones to be where I am at today. It is even better to know that others traveled the same path a tad further. I would say that the Fifty plus forum is more considerate to our way of life.

    It takes the likes of DnvrFox to make this all work.

    To the person who "refuses to get old:"

    What exactly is the alternative? Just hope that you grow up before you grow old!

    Grow up???? Who wants to grow up. My toys just got bigger and more expensive. Hope I never grow up. More fun to tease the youngsters that way.

    Check out the original posting date. That number is almost 3 1/2 years out of date.

    Not too early to start looking for a recumbent bike.

    Don't worry, with gas prices at $30.00 per gallon by then, you'll have to be pedaling.

    Interesting stuff and nice to hear from you again Dnvr.
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    I wish you didn't do it though. Looking at the numbers I didn't think I was that old.
