I've noticed that the Slowtwitch "youngsters" don't seem to pounce on our "old folk"' posts iike they do on some of their peers. Is that out of respect, reverence or what? We still like good trash talking so bring it on.

Aloha,

Larry the 2nd photo belongs in the HOTTIE thread or LAVENDER ROOM. Not sure where to put the first photo...my guess is you did not shave your legs back then, "grizzly adams"!

1971. I remember those times and those styles. Was 20 yrs old then. Drove a 1968 Triumph Spitfire. Also had a beard and my hair was even longer than yours.

Thanks for the memories.

I didn't start until I was 52... but ten years later I do make better risk-reward decisions.

.....so I sold the motorcycles and kept the tri, mountain and road bikes.

(But I have a secret stash of my climbing gear)

Rock on buddy...

roubaixman was in his 50's in 2006 when he wrote the OP. He could be in his 70's by now :)

A recent bike accident has caused my wife and MD to gang up on me and tell me that I'm too old to be riding in the hills. Such statements as "You're 50 and in denial about your age and abilities," etc have prompted me to ask when are you too old to bomb descents, ride in traffic, pacelines, and races? Personally, before I went down I was having the time of my life and had it ended there, I think I might have died happy. In truth, I can't wait to mend and go back to that same descent and ride it successfully.

The real question is not age but risk. Are you willing to risk that riding style based on your ability?
