I've ridden with;

Dan Burkhart
Billydonn
Road Fan

I'm looking forward to meeting more 50+ people this year.

But I've also ridden with members of the Classic and Vintage forum,
and half of them are over 50.

I've met and ridden with Jethro56. He came over to Indy from IL for a ride a couple of seasons ago and we try to get together to ride a couple of times a year since then.

I've also met JanMM a few times, and while those occasions have been during rides, I can't say I've ridden with him - just said hello at rest/lunch stops. Maybe that'll change this year.

I've missed 10Wheels twice now at the Indy Tour de Cure. We've both been there, but haven't actually met.

Yeah actually I don't really want to meet anyone who posts here - although I do know OCRR RICK (who is the sweetest guy)- but I knew him before I started posting here... I also know some other posters from different forums.

The other day I was hiking and this guy asked me if I was Pam... took me aback. Never met him but putting posts together he figured out it was me (I said I would be out at the same area about the same time). I should have lied but realized I was also wearing my IRC namebadge so could not escape!

I don't get out much.


And I've not yet convinced any of my other cycling friends to join 50+.

I got to meet Digital Gee one time and we shared a pizza. We never got to ride together, but I did see him pedaling around on the bike I had rented for the week.

I just renewed my CIBA membership today, so hope to again run into (so to speak) and actually ride with CraigB on club rides this year.

Have been passed by Blazing Pedals and interacted with him at SAGs (does he ever hang out here?) at a couple of Hilly Hundreds.

Have ridden with a fellow on a HOOTS (Hoosiers out on Tandems) ride whose name escapes me who I'm guessing qualifies for 50+. He sometimes posts in Tandems forum.

At the 50+ Ride at the Finger Lakes a few years ago, I met:

Miss Kenton and husband
Beverly
Jim from Boston
and of course, tsl, who organized the 50+ participation there.

And probably some others whose names I've forgotten (sorry!).

I suspect among the many people touring down there have been a few passing by ,
who may be posting or, un aware of this forum.

[but I dont have a clue about the many on US101 during the dry quarter of the year]

It does appear that 50+ folks are more reclusive than I expected. Buy IMO traveling is fun

I think I've only ridden with some of the crew from NC: jppe, nealh, and bikewnc.

I've seen a few 50+ jerseys in my area, but haven't talked to any of the wearers (or ridden with them that I know of).

Ridden with DEK several times and almost got to meet HawkOwl when he was down here on vacation. He'll be returning again, within the next few months, so I hope to meet him and maybe get in a ride or two with him. I hope to start my Florida cycling tour in the next month or two, so maybe I'll run into some other FB members.
