I just joined although I am an old man (64); I have been riding and cherishing bikes (basically, but not exclusively, bicycles) since I was 5 or so. I've never really got off of them -- not wanting to do much more than moving between A and B (and collecting Brooks) -- but have recently invested in more goodies like Abus folding granites, an Alpina helmet, Philips lamps, a KlickFix Bag for the tools, a Sigma 1609 STS and all that.
I've now gotten into long drives along the Danube etc.
Okay, that isn't all that much, but I've still got a year or two to go (I think).
I'm very happy to be here on board!
