70+ and Still Going Strong

I joined to answer a members query. He was wondering about the Royal Standard. It was the light weight in the 1950s which hooked me on cycling. Still going with my sons on road bikes and really hooked on mountain bike single track. Bikes in current stable, Treks, Specialized, Cannondale, and Fugi 29ers. At 70+ Not as fast as I once was but many decades and thousands of miles in the bag and hopefully more years ahead.

I just turned fifty and like riding more and more each year. Hope I still feel that way at 70 ...

Welcome to Bike Forums. Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello. And since you're over 65 you're welcome to post in the 65-85+ thread.

The only bike I could never part with is my Raleigh Super Course Mark II. Most of my stable just makes life fun. The Raleigh is an old friend. I have no idea how many miles are on that bike. Today it hangs on the wall.
