When it comes to deciding age-groups in bike racing, which came first, the chicken or the egg. When you are 60+, being able to race against your peer's is very, very rare. I am 73 and every once in a while I can find a TT with my age group. The basic question is: are there few older age groups because there are not many older racer's OR are there not many older racer's because there fewer age groups. I know as a former competitive runner, most races have age groups into the 70's and 80's. When I was 50 I didn't care, but as I got older I stopped entering races that did not have my age group. I am disappointed in the bike community not giving older (but willing racer's if given a competitive chance) folks a fair shot. I really would like to hear your thoughts on this and maybe get a movement going.
