I didn't realize the forum was still new when I joined. I remember DnvrFox from the years here. I'm "only" 69 and still going strong. Good luck for your future and thank you for helping create this space.

I recall reading your posts years ago. I took a several year break from BF due to a career interruption. When I returned there were lots of new posters and many that were no longer around for whatever reason. In lots of ways the tone of BF has changed and not for the better. Thanks for checking in and thanks for your efforts to grow this resource in the early days.

Nice to see so many usernames from the past posting to this thread.

Thank you for your contributions I'm sure you still have knowledge we all can benefit from. I'm in a out of the forum . I'm 62 and fighting feet issues and trying to get back to riding. You riding into your 80's gives me hope

Denver, you have always been, and continue to be an inspiration to me.
I kind of stepped back from this sub forum when the tone changed and it stopped being fun.
At 70 years old, I hope I have lots of years to pedal on.
All the best to you and Nora.

Hell, if I'm still alive in my 80s and have two functioning brain cells, I'll call it a win.

I just realized the other day I've got to get to my 80s. (71 now.) There's that song I've been hearing nearly my entire life "Just 22 and I don't mind dying. (Who do you love?)" You can replace 22 with 32, 42 up to 92 except 72 has too many syllables! So I've got to hang on another 11 years.

2014 here so just a newcomer.
