    "The bicycle, in the hands of a novice, is as alert and acute as a spirit-level in the detecting of delicate and vanishing shades of difference in these matters. It notices a rise where your untrained eye would not observe that one existed; it notices any decline which water will run down." -Mark Twain, "Taming the Bicycle"

It makes me tired just to think of undertaking all that. Apart from an occasional slipped disc I am in pretty good health for my age. Cycling gives me great pleasure and freedom to explore my surrounding environment at a comfortable pace. In retrospect I am sorry I did not buy the book about the mechanics and history of the bicycle. Something about growing older has given me a great interest in how things work.
    Buy the mechanics book, make your bike ride right, then go out and ride so your body feels good. Repeat.

    To answer the last, wherever we'll find it when we need it.

    Best 'how things work' orientation is to build or rebuild a couple of bikes and components, you learn a ton through trial and error and if you need information to solve a problem you can usually find it on the internet, and it becomes a good deal more relevant in practical application. Welding? That I haven't tackled, but maybe I'll take a class from a builder someday...some allow you to build your own frame in their shop for a student fee.
    Author of "past 50" is Joe Friel, a 50+er. Teacher of a well respected framebuilding class: Doug Fattic, also 50+.

    I'd like to see a Chapter devoted to "existing in this reality while not being in this reality." In this state I am probably the fastest rider no one has ever heard of.

    Chapter 6-Sex after 50+, is it a fact or a myth? (or how much for the little blue pills?)

    Chapter 7-Scheduling your colonoscopy and not ruining your training/riding schedule
    "I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me" Philippians 4:13
