    Smile Rode my age

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Yesterday was my 66th birthday so I went out and rode my age, just to prove I could. Coincidentally I also hit my PB for speed which was not brilliant but good for me. Today I went out and did an easy spin and the speed was still there. What a nice surprise birthday present.

    That is AWESOME! A very happy birthday, and many more years of riding your age. You're an inspiration!

    Many happy returns of the day and the ride!
    Each day is a gift, that's why it is called the present.

    thank you one and all- Personally I'm [lanning to be still riding at 90. Maybe I'll live long enough to ride a century as my age and then die. What a way to go. " Rid hard and put up wet."
