Today one of my sons pointed out that my father collects fishing gear and I collect cycling gear. My initial reaction was, "No, I'm not at all like that." But, he's right. I have cycling gear I haven't used in years; I've got more bikes than I NEED. I've backups for my backups. All just like my father does with his fishing equipment. Heís got salt water fishing reels, spinning reels, bait casting reels, reels for any situation you can imagine. Iíve got road bikes that can be raced, touring, cross, commuting, single track, and one I only ride in the rain. Heck, he's 85 years old and looking at a pickup truck to haul his boat trailer. I'm dreaming of the bike I'll ride in my 70s. Yeah, Iím just like my father. So, it got me wondering how many other 50+ers have a lineage of collecting that may be part of who you are today?
