    Old man discovers his youth

    Hello to you bi-peds!
    Just joined a week ago. Am 62, just retired, have rhumatoid arthritis and a leaky heart valve. Rx?: Get on a bike and ride! I love it, rain or shine. I live in Espoo, Finland, where paved, lighted and well maintained bike paths abound. Am learning so much already from you all.

    Welcome Dave.

    Old?? What's that?
    I'll be 63 next month and I'm not old. Cycling keeps me young.
