Was there a memo here on 50+ that I missed? What did you have to do to qualify?

Go to strava.com, join - free, and look at challenges.
Strava is a place to record your rides - keyboard entry or from android/iphone and some cycling or running gps devices such as Garmin edge 500.
Link to my ride yesterday.
Scratchlabs sponsered last challenge that ended friday. Objective was to ride 455 miles in 14 days. It was fun for me trying to figure out how to ride an extra 10 to 15 mi per day for two weeks. Then doing it and trying to work my way up in the standings by riding more miles. About half of riders from US. Overall leader, Kingsburry from NY accumulated over 1,600 miles in 15 rides and second place was less than ten miles behind him. I really enjoyed the chance to compete and check my skills with almost 8,000 riders around the world.
Miles accumulated at end determined your finishing place in the standings.
Retired 76 YO. Got my sub 5 ET century at 50 and sub 7 RT at 75. Just want to finish sub 10 RT at 80. USNR, USAF, USCGA - riding 2014 Zenetto Steath ZR7.1 Carbon
