    gemini2640

    Hi everyone - I live in Austin, TX....have been here for many years - Did a lot of cycling around Texas in sanctioned rides etc., but got away from it 6 years ago due to husband's illness.....now just do the "veloway" (an Austin 3 mile just for bicycles) and neighborhood .....and yes it's getting boring...(city streets are too dangerous in this city - for me anyway). Do not have any friends as active as I am. By the way, I'm a senior citizen (over 60), so would like to know if there are any "seniors" here in Austin, TX who are just riders in the 9-11 mph range for now ...especially to train for long distance cyling over this year as I'm really wanting to ride with some seniors in the MS150 ride from Houston to Austin in April, 2015.

    Welcome Gemini. I don't live near you but glad you posted. I'm trying to increase my distance riding and hope to do a century this year.

    Cripes ... coming to terms with the fact that "senior" status is waiting for me at my next rest stop.

    Have you checked any of your local bike clubs? Lots of them have low mileage "no drop" rides that you might like.

    Welcome to BF and the 50+ Forum, you can post here in the Texas Regional Forum Texas Others in your area can guide you to rides and other events in your area. You can probably find a like minded rider that is close enough for some rides. Glad that you have gotten back into bicycling.

    Welcome gemini. If you're over 65 (like me -- I'm 69 ) stop by the 65+ thread. Its one of the stickies at the top of the 50+ forum.

    When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. Arthur Conan Doyle
