    Okay, we now have 199 folks who have taken the time, energy and courtesy to share their experiences in the "Special Thread" as a 50+ bicyclist.

    So, who will be number 200, and gets the BIG PRIZE?

    And, what should that BIG PRIZE be?

    I'd love to claim the prize, but I'm only 48 and much too young for the "Old Fart Club".

    He made the point - he'd love to claim the prize! I don't blame him - he just isn't lucky enough to be an "old fart" yet! <G>

    Well, there is no prize yet, because no one has suggested one.

    I think he just wanted to make the point that he thinks of the 50+ forum as filled with (and is for) "old farts."

    I guess??

    Why don't we ask a major manufacturer to provide a bike as a prize? The publicity alone might make it worth their while. I'd chip in $10 toward the shipping..

    I'd also suggest that rather than give the prize to the 200th joiner, we do a random drawing of the existing 200 members. Then we ALL have a stake in it.

    hey, I like that idea!
    And I am sure there are other choices I haven't thought of, yet...
