I thought about this one and I answered top 20% - what is your definition for the population of 50+ cyclist? If it's they guy who gets out at a minimum of twice a year then I would be in the top 20% - and so would most if not all people who participate here - I would venture to say if you rode more than 25 miles/week you would be in the top 20% no matter what your speed or the elevations you climb.

You don't have to ride 1k miles/week like some seem to and you don't have to climb El Capitan in the big ring to be in the top 20% of the 50+ cyclists out there.

I'm not going to down grade myself or any of my fellow 50+'s - HTFU, we are all in the top 20 percentile of the entire 50+ cycling population out there.
