I have to say that when I do a "ride my age" ride I never keep track of the time. These rides are celebratory rides for me, a gala ride to mark the passing of yet one more trip around the sun on this planet to which I belong. That means I typically stop often to chat with folks. Sometimes I take along a small bottle (quarter bottle) of champagne and some smoked oysters or other delicacy to share with fellow riders at the half-way point. Or, I may just amble along and take lots of photographs of things that simply interest me (typically with a micro lens). The thought of doing anything closely resembling a hammer-fest would make it something other than the celebration I want.

However, if a different kind of ride floats your boat, I'm happy for you. To the OP, Cheers! Here's hoping you have many more that are just the way you want them.
