Oh my, there's another person out there rolling unsupported doubles and such? Awesome. There's a handful of locals, including my wife and me, who do this. It's nice to know there are others who don't need an organized ride to justify riding a ways.

I/we usually take off long before sunrise and head off into the hills where there aren't any people (or amenities), so no one sees me until I roll back into town late in the day. I get a lot of funny looks at the four bottles on the frame and a huge back pouch on my reflective vest that's got a couple more, plus whatever clothing has been shed.

I'm actually thinking of doing some organized rides for the first time in decades, maybe next year. I'll have to see if I can squeeze one or two into what is becoming a very busy time of life for me.

Happy 50th and welcome to 50+!! I followed a blog of Rowan and you a few years ago on one of your self supported tours----not sure when are where though. I think Rowan might have provided some suggestions last year when I was looking at different routes for riding across the US.

I have some friends that have done a lot of the longer rides, not sure if you've ever crossed paths but I think one might even put on one here in NC. Tony Goodnight is his name. A really fine fella.

And as far as your original questions, I really enjoy 100 milers. I rode 9-100+ milers riding across the US (supported) in 41 days of riding last year with the longest being 127 miles. I've taken a break from the longer rides since then but 60-80 miles is pretty much the norm for me these days. I also found that riding around where I live in the Piedmont of NC it is hillier than most areas of the US that I crossed which turned out to be pretty good training.

All the best!

I rode from southern Vermont to my daughter's house a mile from Gillette Stadium in Foxboro MA 2 years ago when I was 63. 70 miles the first day, 50 the next. Great ride, not that hard after the first 30 pretty uphill miles! I have gotten to the point where riding long distances is fun and I just take my time. Being retired means I can set off on a ride and finish when I finish. This year I am going to tackle some rides that have climbs that have put me off, but I have decided if I need to stop, and maybe walk a bit of it, what the hell. Long 4-5-7 hour rides are great, especially with another person you like to ride with, but sometimes more fun alone where you can set your own pace.

Rode the Solvang Double Century on Sat. Mar. 18th, riding with the Very Famous Isabelle Drake on what was her 50th California Double. Will post a full report (with far too much detail!) later.

http://www.caltriplecrown.org/DoublesbyName/RiderHistoryReport.asp?RiderID=6062&ClubID=

Cool and foggy in the morning, warm and sunny in the afternoon, a fun ride through some absolutely beautiful scenery, Solvang to San Luis Obispo and back in a huge loop.

I didn't start cycling until is was in my mid 50's, about 6 yo. Got a little into the randonneuring last year and completed 200, 300 and 360k. Hope to take it a step or two farther this year.

Man, you guys are my heros! Congrats on riding all of these long distance rides.

One question I have is are most of you folks retired? For me I'm still a working stiff (40 hour work week plus commute time) and am having a hard time getting some mileage in during the week after work. I'm kind of tired when I get home and can only get in about an hour or so. Weekends are sort of tough also with all the family commitments and stuff. Hard even to get 50 miles per week.

Anyone else still working and trying to train for a metric or centry ride? Is it easy for you?

Oh trust me ... I'm still working.

I get 50% of my miles commuting to and from work on the bike, and the other 50% riding one of the weekend days.

If you can swing the bike commute ... it makes a huge difference. If your distance is too long, consider driving part of the way and riding the rest.

Definitely not retired! I work full-time + commutes. And I attend university part-time.
http://www.bikeforums.net/fifty-plus...niversity.html

This month, we've done two 200K and two metric centuries, plus a bunch of other rides.

We don't do a whole lot during the week, but try to get one 27 km ride in each week (that's a ride up the Cycleway and back) and then one or two shorter rides. Therefore, most of our riding is on weekends.

Absolutely still working.

I commute a couple of times a week and get out on Saturdays. I'll be increasing my distances quite a bit in the coming months.

One thing that I always found helpful is taking a detour or two on the way to work while I'm still fresh and then heading directly home at the end of the day using the shortest route. It means earlier mornings but it means I'm not stealing family time and I don't have to push out extra distance when I'm tired.

I'm retired but just for the last year. I actually rode more when I was working than now that I'm retired. I'm playing golf 5 days a week and walking so still getting regular exercise.

It's just about prioritizing and discipline. I would ride 30-40 miles after work on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Then long rides on weekends. I've been lucky that my family has adjusted things to accommodate the riding, but I've never let it interfere with kids activities or anything my wife needed. A lot of times if my wife was visiting her parents I'd ride my bike the 50-100 miles (depending on the route) and meet her there. Often she suggested it.

Anyway, it's worked for us.

I would love to enjoy long distance... but not there yet, right now i'm a couple of months into 're-cycling' and do 30km (15 uphill and 15 back down) run at the weekend, one issue for me is to do longer I'd need some flat road, and I have to drive a while to find that, as I live in a hilly city... but I'll get there... I want that 100km day....

What do you use to keep track of your distance and climbing? Does it fit on multiple bikes? Do you have more than one, on the different long ride bikes ?

I use a combination of Strava and Excel.

I do have computers on each bicycle but only to refer to when I'm riding. At the end of the ride, I enter the info from Strava into my Excel file.

Before Christmas, I didn't have Strava, so I just used the data from whatever computer was on my bicycle to populate my Excel file.

And I've been maintaining my Excel file for about 17 years now. Before that, I hand-wrote my records.

Happy Birthday Machka! And a Good Day Mate - to Rowan.

Your latest albums are outstanding - I'm jealous beyond words. My niece and her honey got over to New Zealand for an outing but I don't know their particulars of their travels.

It's easy to see what a paradise that part of the world provides. You obviously are living life large. Sorry to hear of the DVT - and I know you have an "annoying" foot issue as well.

I certainly had my share of great "post 50 year-old" rides, but I have to report little activity this last year. Unlike you and Rowan - my partner has lost most of her interest in riding and prefers to hike or walk for exercise. We both had major heart surgery last year - and both had some complications but we both eventually have completely recovered.

My last Century was May of 2015 - but I fairly pleased with my current year's record of making 51 miles in three hours without putting a foot down. To most of the folks I'm in contact with - that is Long Distance Riding.

The other day, I counted up my 2017 year to date tally:
10 Metric Centuries & 1 Imperial Century.
All were unsupported and with just 1 or 2 friends.
Tomorrow I have Metric # 11 planned with 3 friends.
My age: 54

I have ridden 14 double centuries, but only 1 was when I was over 50, the rest were in my 40's.
My many Metrics, and occasional Imperials, keep my long distance instincts satisfied pretty well these days.

I'm doing a fast 50 miler in the morning, about 18 mph with some climbing too. I will go out with 2 cups of coffee and only water in my bottles but some leg cramp pills and e Gels on hand just in case.

I found randonneuring at age 50, in 2010, completing a SR series that year with the help and advice of the rando community. It was the hardest thing I'd ever done, but left me feeling like I could do anything. Two PBPs, one 1500, and multiple SR series later, I've figured out a lot of things.

Between PBPs I gave ultras a try, reaching my goal of 400 miles in 2015.

Wish I was retired, I'm working 50 hours/week. Fortunately, you don't have to train big miles to ride big miles.

This August I'm heading to Scandinavia for SBS. So far, cycling after 50 is pretty great.

Hey RC! Thanks for the kind words. I was wondering what was wrong with you and why you weren't as active as you had been in riding and posting here. The major heart surgery and complications certainly explain things.

I hope you can progress back to some of the moderate long-distance stuff. I know that there are expectations to achieve the same levels of effort and perfomance over the same routes as before and it does take patience to take it step-by-step. Not that I am telling you anything you don't know already.

And yes, it is easy to forget that we represent a miniscule part of a population that by-and-large could ride more than 10 miles at a time without collapsing in a heap.
