My only hope would be to take him on the climbs.

Not me. I'm tired of getting dropped all the time.

We have all officially run out of excuses.

I like that line.

Plus if he follows the "Frenchman's Rule" his GF is a 57 yo.

Then there is hope for me after all. At 77 I am still struggling to break the 15 mph average speed mark.
Best I have done so far is 14.5 for 26 miles.

bobthib 08-05-12 08:26 PM

I have something to aspire to...

krobinson103 08-05-12 08:53 PM

I hope I can do as well if I ever reach 100. :)

cbresciani 08-06-12 02:09 PM

That is truly inspiring.

I'm 51, and I'm not sure I can keep up with you. You should be proud and pleased.

It's a tought call, 15 MPH is great when you are 100 but... For the rest of us it would depend on a lot of different things...
