I can only say, older guy's should not ride unless they know how too. Example Bono of U2 and now John Kerry need to contact us on BF to show the way Love that Serotta TI, hope the bike is still ride-able and John Kerry along with Bono recover to ride again!

John Kerry rides more than the average C&V'er, I'd bet. I don't know what he'd learn here except how to argue about minutiae on the interwebs.

To be fair, he and his boss have tried to remedy that situation.

At least he supported plans to improve access to insurance, for millions of Americans who work hard at jobs and those who do not.

P&R here we come, just lock it up here.

I hope he heals quickly. I am inspired by by the fact that although I may be ten years older than the oldest Grand Tour riders, I may still have at least 20 years of fast riding ahead of me. The only question is will I be riding a cutting-edge 2035 model bike or a classic vintage model from the 2010s?

Ignoring the politics about why, the fact are simply these: Far fewer Americans don't have insurance currently than who lacked insurance a couple of years ago. And nowadays, unlike two years ago, the overwhelming majority of those who are currently uninsured are that way voluntarily.
