Thursday, my singing group traveled to sing in Allenspark, CO, 100 miles into the Colorado Mountains, taking us through Boulder, Lyons and up a lot of grades, curves, etc.
This is bicycling mecca, Boulder being one of this country's bicycling centers.
So, we passed dozens of bicyclists on great bikes. What was amazing was that more than 50% of those we passed were female cyclists, including two very capable looking ladies with loaded touring bikes - in the mountains - both with military type helmets and one with a whole paragraph tattoed on her leg (I don't know what it said).
I don't know if any of them were 50+, but I know for certain that eventually they will be, to the benefit of our entire cycling world.
Bravo to the ladies.
