That 3 hour onset is a funny thing. I'm 58 and mainly ride to keep trim. I'm riding way less miles than many of you and I ride a flat, creekside trail. There is maybe 15 feet of elevation difference from one end to the other. If I relly push it and go the full 22 miles, I arrive home feeling fine. About two hoiurs later; bonk. I get knocked flat with lack of energy. A tall glass of orange juice really helps. bk
