I’ve been here a while, liked the 50+ camaraderie years ago, even tho never buying a 50+ jersey or attending the 50+ annual rides.

DenvrFox started 50+ (in a way) and many of his posts were very personal, non-cycling issues.
At times it appeared that a very few contributors wanted to ‘direct’ the conversation. Fine. But to get PO’d when things didn’t happen their way or criticism was offered is not very ‘Internet-y’. People move on, it’s life.

For my part, i’m most appreciative of the Pills and Ills subforum. Really added to 50+ for me to keep those type of discussions separate.

Disappointing for me is the lack of customers in Pub51. It’s unworthy of the title ‘Pub’. Nobody goes to the Pub for a little lighthearted reparte much. I’ve quit ‘drinking’ there.

I stay just for the bike porn. To me it’s an addictive elixir.
Life is good, bike on!

2019 50+ bike ride in the Puget Sound area. I’m hosting and will set a ride(s) based on the wishes of those who sign-up. One day or a whole week. Anyone? I know I can scare up at least 6-8 PNW BF members. All are over 50 years of age, many do not contribute on this subForum.
