It's a matter of semantics. I am in my 50th year. For all intents and purposes I am 49. But I am in my 50th year. In fact, the second half of my 50th year.

Does that qualify me for "membership" of this forum... and of this thread because I think I may have inadvertently conveyed some aspect of my experience to the forum??

52er here. Raced in the 80's. Just bought a new one and was amazed at the advances in bikes since my last bike purchase 20 years ago.

57, riding a Litespeed ultima with spinergy wheelset; I've always had a bike--even an old beater for four years in Tokyo in the mid-70s. Once back in the US my wife and I got into mountain biking about 1980 and then in 2001, a friend died of AIDS and in his honor we started road riding to raise money for AIDS research/ support. We do the Aids LifeCycle ride every year from SF to LA. Right now (March) we're doing about 150 miles a week. IN a month that'll be up to 2-300. After the Ride in June--assuming we make our fundraising totals--we'll head down to Mexico (where we have a house, in San Miguel de Allende) and get back into off road riding for a while. It's a rhythm that hasn't changed for the past five years--six months of road training, a month of cool down, two months of off road, and three months of trying to make a living, restart a career while getting fat...then it all begins again...I feel stronger now then I did when I was 40 and I owe it all to biking.

Should I take it personally that you stopped the day before my 50th birthday?

For the right "incentive" I will gladly add your name.
