I'm 68, but I KNOW there are others here that are old enough where I REALLY hope I'm still riding when I get to be their age.

I am 70. I was born in the first half of the last century. Just bought a Giant LaFree E+1. Plan to ride it for at least the next decade.

I'm 80 but I know there's older riders than me on here. I just purchased an EMTB this morning so that will be a new adventure.
Good for you. You might win the prize. Hope I'm still riding at 80. Hell hope I m still here at 80. Congratulations.

Shouldn't be to hard for you. You are already doing at least one thing right . . . riding the bike.

As for the rest, just read Dr. Gregor's "How Not to Die" and pay attention and you are well off on the way to double 40.

You're only as old as you feel..... I turned 82 early July. Been riding last 4 years, Started and lead a weekly riding group 70 to 80 turn up each week, split up into a number of smaller groups depending on self selected speed and ability. every 6 to 8 weeks go to Whakarewarewa mountain bike park. I can handle grade 2 and some grade3 (out of 6grades) Oh, Diabetic too like I said You're only as old as you feel/want to be.

Just a youngling here at 51... but it feels like oh, 35? Ebike since 49.5.
Reunited with my original 1992 pedal bike a month ago, now on FAR better terms with it than when last ridden 25 years ago, and gradually incorporating it into rotation.
