I'm definitely a middle-of-the-pack rider. MAYBE, just maybe if we got every 50+er on this forum on a ride I could make it to a slightly higher percentile, but I am constantly discouraged that every new 50+ rider I find who has been riding 6 mos is stronger than I. I'm feel like I'm same rider I was 8 years ago, when I started. I never get any better. I know I can out ride nearly every 63-year-old in the country (and probably most of the 30-year -olds)(I'm counting all the non-riders, too), but it seems all the ones who are better than me live in my neighborhood!

If I have a strength, I can ride all day -- at a relaxed pace.
