I went out for a Wednesday club ride this week. I am not retired, but many of the people on the ride were. I didn't check IDs, but I would guess that at least 4 or 5 of the riders were around your age or possibly older. All of them were strong riders and while they kept a mostly leisurely pace, I did find myself bringing up the rear by the end of the 35 mile ride., despite being 15 to 25 years younger than most of the people on the ride. I found it most inspiring as it showed me that it isn't necessarily all downhill after 50.
