Poll: How old are you?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Young people don't post in forums. They use facebook, twitter, instagram, pinterest, and all the others.

Although I'm almost old, I actually get most of my cycling information from facebook these days ... my newsfeed is full of stories about the latest bicycles, cycling events, what the pros are doing, etc. etc. etc.

Young people have to work hard in their shared cubes. So we old people can read and post in forums in our private office.

I'm 29 and I'm here. I guess next October I will officially be OLD, though (30th bday). But I hang out a lot in the Vintage forum and get the passed-down wisdom from all the old timers. Indispensable fonts of knowledge, they are!

An indispensable font is Helvetica or other sans serif.

Hmm, the type font list isn't scrolling any.

Um ... when I said I'm almost old ....


.... I meant 50. I'll be turning 50 this coming March.


30 is still really young!

Almost 34, and like others mention, having a family makes it very tough to ride. Thankfully, I ride my bike to work most days.

It's tough enough being old, now I have to be mature, too?

30-35. Most other cyclists I see out on the road are either much younger or much older. Every one of them can kick my butt- I suck at this sport, but it is fun.
