Hello from Gothenburg Sweden

I am 67 years old. I started to ride a racing bike at 59. At one of the first rides I did when i had bought my bike summer 2003 i heard about something called PBP. So that become my goal for my training to participate 2007 in Paris-Brest-Paris. Which i eventually did 2007. My hope is to be in such a shape that I can qualify and participate again 2011. I have also done all brevets 200, 300, 400, 600 and 1000. Hopefully I will do the Fleche this spring to receive the Randoneuer 5000 medal. To keep my self in shape between PBP I have done one "Svensk Klassiker" last yaer and hopefully complete another one this year.

Welcome to BikeForums. Kudos on your accomplishments.
You'll find lots of "older" cyclists here. I'm 65. Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the "old farts".

Welcome to the Forums! Sounds like you could write a post or two in our Long Distance, Randonneuring etc. Forum.

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
