    Hello from a late starter (in waiting)

    Hello everyone from a complete newbie from County Durham, England. I'm errrrrm, over 50, and am thinking of progressing from my exercise bike to a road bike. Or am I too old for a new adventure and just acccept middle age with some saving grace.

    I intend to have a good read of the posts on here....it looks a great messageboard....but any advice would be gratefully received.

    Hi Frank,

    Welcome to Bike Forums.

    I started road riding at 65 (now 70 with 48,000 miles.)
    Did a cross country tour at 67.

    Welcome aboard. Over 50 myself and started last year for the first time in 30+ years. Riding a vintage road bike and loving it more than I ever would have imagined.

    Or am I too old for a new adventure and just acccept middle age with some saving grace.

    Do not go gently into that good night.
