If they wanna hang out here, some centenarian will have to start up a Fifty Plus Fifty (100+) forum. Anyone getting close enough?

Cool to ride in a pass named after yourself.

Ah -- I am "Beatles age," myself. "Will you still need me ... When I'm 64?"

Our local late great cycling legend, Gordy Shields, was still cycling into his mid-90s.

I wanna be like these guys when I grow up.
