    There are a bunch of us... this is a link to the last "Age Realated" Poll I've seen here.

    All the Arkansas cyclists I've met on this forum seem to be over 50.

    I take that back, one is 48 I believe.

    Curious as to why you might be surprised???

    Are 50+'rs not common where you live? They are crawling all over the place around here.

    I started riding on roads when I was 23...............I suppose at some point in the foreseeable future I will be able to look back at 50+ years of cycling. Will I still be able to listen to The Ramones at that point in the lifespan?

    The "Baby Boom" is defined as people born between '46 and '64. That puts us right in the midst of their qualifying for 50+.

    I was born in '46 and graduated from high school in '64.

    It is reassuring to know I'm in good company, guys and gals. Crank on...

    Floyd - Do they REALLY have bikes in Central Kansas? I didn't think they had anything but farm tractors, horses and pickup trucks!

    We got those too, I even have the 1951 international that my family bought the year I came into the world... My recumbents are used more though at this point. I do have a tractor too.

    They're pretty thick here, too -- in more ways than one. And most couldn't pedal across town, much less something more challenging....

    What's wrong with being in our 50's ? One of my grandfathers lived to be 101 so I figure I'm only half way there !

    Hays, Kansas, is one of the Recumbent Bike centers of the world. RANS builds bikes there.

    Maybe we should form our own secret society...
    I thought I was suffering from depression once. Turned out, I was simply surrounded by idiots.
