A pic of old gapwedge
1 Attachment(s)
At age 56 I feel I can wear this jersey with pride. I do get "hey!, old fart how ya doing" from some passers by. 6'0" 253 pounds. Jersey looks tighter than it really feels. It is a 3XL from Love2Pedal. Feels fine with plenty of room around the armpits and enough length. Taken today at our LBS.

pumped a little iron in my time, but need to drop about 50 pounds or so. Just became a grandpa 3 weeks ago, so working on maintaining my health and improving my cardio.

What the....first grankid? Heck, we just went to a baby shower lastnight. Our 7th grandkid on the way!:D

Way I see it, If you keep yourself strong, fit and keep up the mileage, yhou can drop the weight anytime you choose! All them miles, looks like you're on your weigh!:p

Congrats on the grandkids. 400 miles per month is going to be a tough one unless I increase my daily rides because I will probably not be as lucky to have the weather and time, but I will try. As for losing the weight any time I choose....yeah...that is a good one. Believe me I am trying.

Nice jersey,

Are you ridding the MS 150 at Petit Jean this year?

Would love to B but I don't have the legs for 2 day event. I am hoping next season if I have a good winter. I still need to get stronger first.

Nice jersey. Congrats on the grandbaby. Keep having fun while you're riding.

Thanks ArtO. My wife thinks I am the biggest ****** on a bike. But at my age...I could give a rip. :)
