A riding friend claims that the knees are the body part that goes, when you are in your 60s, finally getting you off your bike. And into the walker, I guess. Anybody have experience on this one?

63 now and going to have a lft knee replaced to match the right,
of coarse after cycling season.
I stopped doing just about everything in my early 40's because of a severe back injury. I started riding again at age 63 and have been glued to a bike saddle ever since. I can no longer run for any real distance because of my knees, but that is the only thing I can't do because of knee issues.LarryM said:I quit riding in my 40's due in part to range of motion problems from severe Rheumatiod Arthritis. I started riding again in my early 60s. Now, 2 months short of turning 70, my knees are in the best shape that they've been in during the past 30 years, thanks to bicycling.
Have the same problem. Trashed my knees in high school running every day back around 1970. No problems riding. Also had a car crash that screwed up 3 discs in my back and 3 in my neck from a side whiplash (hit by a drunk speeding through a red light). Had been off the bike for about 20 years, started back early last year. That plus losing weight and working out at the gym has greatly reduced my back issues. My knees flare up a bunch, but riding actually makes them feel better.My knees are stiffer after sitting in a comfortable chair reading than after a good ride.
