It was 80F today and once again, my friend, John, is on the trail wearing only what looks like a Speedo. He is about 4 years older than I - which would make him about 78yo, and rides vintage classic 10 speeds from about the 50's or so - which he builds/restores.
According to John, he rode in the TdF eons ago, or something like that. I do know that he can leave me behind in a flash, and he weighs about 110 lbs. His skin is all wrinkled and brown.
Several years ago he tangled with a horse and the horse won, and he ended up with a broken clavicle, and the horse and rider went on their merry way, never to be seen again. John healed OK.
So, more power to John. May he continue to ride with his Speedo for many years to come.
