    My wife made sure I gave up fast women well before I was over 50.

    I'm 68 and have just started riding a road bike after years on flat bars and it is noticeable that the lower riding position does make it easier to ride fast.

    I've absolutely no idea how fast I've gone downhill as I don't have a bike computer/speedo but I know it's nowhere near the higher end speeds mentioned on this thread. The hills around here tend to...

    At 50+ you can look forward to not worrying if you look like a noob - you know you're not one.

    You ride to feel good, not to impress others.

    Just off to the LBS to look for a couple of those...

    It's not just wind resistance that's slowing me down.

    Don't forget that here in the UK we have the front brake lever on the right.

    A double first today

    After a long time off the bike while recovering from an accident and surgery to my knee I finally got to do my first “proper” ride in almost six months. I had hoped to do it a couple of weeks ago...

    As my rides are rarely longer than 40 miles I don't bother planning them, other than having a rough idea of the sort of route I can do in the time available.

    Perhaps I ought to plan more - a...

    Wow! I've got rid of the dork discs on my rear wheels and thought no-one would recognise me as a newb who has only ridden since 1958, now I'm mortified to see that the dust caps on my valves give me...

    I suppose there are bound to be problems when you close around a 100 miles of road for most of a day. Not everyone is a lover of cycling and for these people the whole thing could be just a PITA.

    15000 bikes outside my house.

    Today was the day of the first Velothon Wales. 3 separate rides on closed roads - a 50km sportive (Gran Fondo), a 140km sportive, and a 174km UCI pro race - with a total of 15000 riders.

    When I was a 12 year old in the late 1950s I was riding in the country lanes with a group of friends when we came across a pile of girlie mags at the side of the road. Probably very tame by today's...

    It's great that we can all find some form of exercise that we can enjoy, and life would be very boring if we all had the same tastes.

    Personally I've never found riding long, steep climbs fun, and...

    He's always been one of cycling's gentlemen.

    I met him a couple of years back at the UK Cycle Show and he spent ages talking to me and my pals about his career. Also gave me a large signed poster...

    My only tip is keep on doing what you're obviously enjoying doing for as long as you can. There will come a time when your body will let you know you have to take it easier but you're not yet 60...
