    New and old

    Hi there!

    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!

    Mike

    How kind of you!
    Good to know that I'm not the oldest here (haven't yet checked out all members).
    Take care.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale SuperSix EVO carbon

    Welcome Mike.
    I'm 66.
    You'll have to post some pics of your rides along the Danube on the 50+ forum.
