I remember when I was in my 20's I rode with an ex-racer who was 50+ at the time. He was still really fast, and much faster than I ever was.

And . . . I remember wondering at the time if I'd even live to be 50, and if so, would I still be riding. Thankfully, yes and yes.

I agree that this is the most civilized forum I participate in (along with SoCal, Single Speed and Long Distance) with regards to showing mutual respect among posters and being (pretty much) troll free.

I like getting in my time machine occasionally. I often wonder what cycling at 85 would be like. (providing things go well) What would those hills be like? how far would we be cycling? how fast would we be going? so many questions.

There is a club here called the romeo club. (retired old men eating out) They are ages about 70-91. Once a week (in summer) they take about a 15 mile ride and then eat lunch. It's cool to see them, usually about a dozen in there matching shirts. I'd join in, but at 59 I would lower their average age.

I think statutes of limitation are a good idea.

I fully agree!

Enjoyable forum! Recomfy since 1980, and I can say so on this forum without being blamed for telling a fish story, be told to give a full explanation, supply photos, get blamed for trolling or spamming, and where I can honestly state my being retired without the comment "Bull!- you are trolling recumbents!"

What does age have to do with growing old?

I agree with Blackberry! This is a great forum, and if someone doesn't care for it, he/she shouldn't exacerbate his/her aggravation with it, just don't read it.

Some few thousand years ago almost noone lived to be more than 40. Today a lot of us will see 90+. What to do with all this extra time? I think this forum is a great inspiration and shows us what we are capable of. Have a good time with a healthy body and slow down the ageprocess in a fun way.

Hey....watch who you're calling a senior citizen

I may be 65 but I don't feel it. I'll be trying my first back-to-back century ride later this year. Who knows what I'll do after that
