When I look at the number of people viewing the forums here and on Road Bike Review at a given time, there may be 150 in Road Cycling here, 250-300 on RBR--and only three or four on this 50+ board. Doesn't seem like older riders are rare, though. I just turned 60, and nearly all the guys I ride with, and a lot of the people I see on the road, are 50 or over. I live near Reno, Nev., and gray hair probably makes up 20 percent of the field at local events. The ex-joggers alone, people who started riding because their knees hurt, are a pretty sizable contingent. Are geezers rare in other parts of the country, or what?
