Am a Maine resident. 74 years old. In reasonably good health (did 51 miles last Sunday). Have rediscovered bicycling after selling my daysailor and spending last summer not only boatless but with a back injury. Where I live we have a few nice bike paths which I have enjoyed for the past six months. A ride through the woods let me experience nature through three seasonal changes. The combination of good health and upbeat mental attitude that cycling gives me is invaluable. A few weeks ago, pedalling along at a steady cadence I had the thought, "If I keep this up when I get old I'll still be in pretty good shape".
