50+ crowd

I noticed this posting section and I am also in the 50+ crowd.
Its amazing the circle of life. From a radical hippie with psychedelic dreams, to a father of 3 raising a family, to a grandfather of 5. Besides building and riding custom bicycles, for 4 years Ive been having fun mentoring our High School robotics group. Its time to give back all of the knowledge i sole from others through the years.

HaHaHa! times change a person.
50+ crowd - 50+

I'm in the 60+ group ... I don't remember the 60's and 70's ... but that's another story.

Is there a 70+ on two spoke?

Well, 70+ here and lots of physical issues to deal with. After 25 years of pretty steady riding in So. Cal., and a lot of distance events I moved to East Texas. Wow! Riding here is putting up with loose dogs and roads that don't have shoulders. But the biggest issue was congestive heart failure. I though all the riding I was doing would keep me healthy. In the last 6 mos. I've had seven stents installed and surgery on a blocked right carotid artery, and a vein in each leg removed. It all had to do with my gene's and my eating habits. So take heed you young'ins and start eating right. I'm just now ready to start riding again.

No truer words ! My uncle stayed active playing baseball and later fast pitch softball and delivered mail on a route for 30 years and had a heart attack. It was , mostly, because he ate a Wendys double or some greasy nasty food every day on his route.
