Well, I made it.
 
I'm 50(and 1 day).
For my 50th b'day I got a new bike, a Trek 7.5 FX.
Needless to say I have been riding bike one way or another since I was 5.
I think I'll leave work on time tonight, and ride.

H.B. !!! Many happy miles to you and the new wheels......one year older but on the way to being a lot more youthful. Get to be a kid again! Keep posting with opinions, questions, experiences.

Yes, there are a whole bunch of crazies around here! Check out the Rogue's Gallery below.

There is a rule - always get your wife a bike just a bit beter than yours. It sets up YOUR next bike purchase. "Honey, you know you have a better bike than I do."

My husband tried that bike a few weeks ago and really liked it. Sorry we didn't make the purchase then, but happy for you that you did! Wishing you happy birthday and miles and miles and miles....
