I am 51 and started cycling about 6 years ago. Last year (2004) was my highest mileage ever, 5,800 miles. Included a road race (188 mile - LOTOJA) and a number of centuries and the Snowbird hillclimb (A road race with 3,500 vertical feet in 11 miles). I am able to ride at lunch time, so I generally get in about 20 miles per work day, if the weather is safe (no ice or snow on the road) and an additional ride on Saturday mornings.
I got a new tandem for our family for Christmas and found this site looking for some information. Lots of great information. So far I have taken both children and my wife for a ride. Hopefully there will be many more.
I ride a Cannondale R2000, A full suspension Kona Kahuna, Speacialized Allez Comp and our new Raleigh Pursuit tandem.
I hope we all have NO LOST RIDING TIME ACCIDENTS FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR!!
