Annual 50+ ride this year?

I've been buried in work this year, sometimes in the USA and sometimes in Germany. Not that I'm tuned up for a lengthy tour, but were any plans agreed on for an Annual 50+ ride this year?

Hi Road Fan,

Thanks for bringing this up. Fifty-Plus Rides are always a highlight of my cycling year, and I have started training for something:

This one seems to have the most momentum:

  • A possible repeat of the MassBike Family Fun and Century Ride in Metro Boston, (?) last weekend in July

Irwin7638 had mentioned a "gravel grinder" in Western Michigan sometime in September, as I recall, and I think he has lined up several riders.

Finally, this Ride was proposed last year for May 17, 2015 in Santa Fe, NM, but I have not seen any reports.

For those unfamiliar with the Fifty-Plus Annual Rides:

No minimum number of riders, other than at least one besides the “host.” After the ride there should be some narratives and photos of the event (“without pictures, it didn't happen”). Then the ride should be recorded in the Chronicle of the 50+ Annual Rides. It would be helpful to keep all the suggestions for a Ride on one single thread…

Hi fr1 (Jay),

Thanks for the note and reminder about tar srips. Hope to see you on the OHR this July; still tentative but I'm training. Any others from Fifty-Plus going?

Does anyone have a link on this year's OHR? I just might be able to make it.

The OHR was the site of the Third Annual Fifty-Plus Forum Ride. The personal narratives of that ride begin with this post, including freedomrider1's admonition about tar strips.

That was a crazy ride. I recall reading this, especially your tar strip wreck and trip to the ER. Thanx for the links!

The gravel ride Jim mentioned was not a 50's specific event but just passed along to anybody who might be interested. Unfortunately I won't make the OHR this year but plan to be in Pennsylvania for the ride.

Thanks for that note. I’m also in training for that one. I was planning to waffle in my training schedule tomorrow, but now I’m provoked to ride.

Nonetheless, Marc, your ride does seem to recreate the élan of previous 50+ Rides.

I plan to go and to bring Mrs. Road Fan. She should by then have her new Georgena Terry to sail off on, and I might have my newer Mondonico in good trim.

Hi @Road Fan, Mrs. RF, @freedomrider, @OldsCOOL, et al.

My still-tentative plans for the OHR is to incorporate it into a visit with family in the Northeastern Detroit suburbs, as I did in 2010. Like we did in 2010, I was thinking about a Friday afternoon ride and/or later dinner. A possibility might be another favorite Ann Arbor ride when I was in school there, riding out Whitmore Lake Road, for a round trip of maybe 20 miles at most. It parallels I-23, so traffic might not be too heavy.

Now from Fraser MI to Ann Arbor (and Chelsea, MI) is a bit of a schlepp for me, especially on a summer Friday afternoon on a whirlwind visit to see my large family, so if anybody has any plans for the OHR ride, could you keep me posted? If there is enough interest in Friday activities, I might get a motel near AA or Chelsea. For me, socialization with other 50+ members is the draw, more than the Ride.

I would like to start the OHR early, as soon as possible after the 6:45 AM check-in, and if we decide to ride together, by mutual decision, on the 39, 64, or 75 mile routes. I ride solo at about a 13-14 mph pace, maybe slightly faster in a group…I have ridden in pacelines. I would want to get back to Detroit late Saturday afternoon at least, since I'll leave for Boston on Sunday.

So, that’s my story, but I’m flexible, and not sticking to it.

I had to breathe in a big lung of air and sigh after reading that. Now, that is one full weekend. Our downstate plans changed to the 4th so I'm out.

I'm still up for OHR, but ... I had a crash yesterday and the beautiful silver Mondonico some of you have seen is now history. I may get the bent main tubes replaced, but it will total out around $900 from Matt Assenmacher's and $500 from Franklin Frames near Columbus, OH. In any case I doubt that bike will be back together by then. But I now have an issue over what to ride. I have a Trek 610 (a kind of low score), my Terraferma 650b (a medium score), and another Mondonico (high score if I can sort out the fittin's better).

My health came out surprisingly well: No concussion, good range of movement except for stiffish neck, no headache or amnesia, and the sore shoulder seems only to be bruised. My helmet is a total loss, however, badly fractured. It did its job.

Unless my shoulder starts a delayed stiffening, I should be fine for OHR as long as I stay on two wheels. If the shoulder does start to act up, I'll need PT and we'll just see what that entails.

As far as socializing, I think it would be great. Jim, if you can't be available after the ride, I have no trouble meeting you guys on Friday. Could do a pub dinner, ice cream, just a quick coffee or beer, or whatever. And we can socialize on the ride.

I do have some work to do for confidence over 40+ miles at 14 mph! As for Mrs. Road Fan, if you guys can keep up with her, you're all much better than I am.

I hope that deep sigh was one of disappointment, not exasperation at my (slightly) long post. Usually these Fifty-Plus Rides have been at least two-day affairs, since some attendees travel a considerable distance to attend. Plans are usually pretty flexible, as suggested by the “host” (instigator) of the Ride.

Wow, RF, sorry to hear about this. It sounds like a “major” crash, especially with such damage. I won’t ask “what happened?,” but posting details for me at least gives me renewed attention to such situations on the road.

I’m not too conversant with bike models, but yours sound exotic. In 2010 I was riding a Bridgestone RB-1 which I was told is a classic, touted even by Sheldon Brown. I was hit from behind by a “distracted” driver in 2012 – no lesson there – and the RB-1 was totaled (see attached). I now ride a superb Specialized S-Works.

So you are a no go for Friday. Seems there is no interest in a Friday ride, so unlikely I would drive up until Saturday. Is Mrs fr1 attending? If we’d like to ride together we’ll have to agree on a distance. Maybe we could do lunch after the ride.

No way we (I) can keep up with BP, as I recall.

sorry to hear about your crash RoadFan, but it sounds like you are ok. and thats the main thing. No Jim Mrs.FR1 will not be able to attend. Lunch in Chelsea would be great. And you are correct on keeping up with B.P.

I'm planning on coming down (weather permitting,) although The Missus may have a word about it - we leave for Oregon on the following Monday. Haven't decided which bike to use this year, my 'tall' bent or my butt-dragger.

Considering the weather so far this season, it might be a good idea to plan a lunch get-together in case of rain...
