I thought there might be some interest in a thread such as this. If not, it will go the way of all threads - just die away.

So, here is my first contribution.

Some questions:

Please tell us your age. 54

1. What type of bikes do 50+ folks ride?
1993 Infinity Its a LWB recumbent

2. Do you take any special supplements/vitamins/minerals as you have grown older?
No but I drink less alcohol

3. How much do you feel you have "slowed down" if any?
When I was 30 I averaged 20 mph on short rides and 16 mph on long rides. (32 km/hr 26 km/hr)
Now I average 14 mph on short rides and 12 mph on long rides. (23 km/hr 19 km/hr)

4. How long have you been biking? New, around a while, biked all your life?
Been biking since I was 8 except for a few years that I took off. Didn't bike from 17 to 22 years old. I didn't bike for a whole year about 4 years ago because of a herniated disk.

5. What type of biking do you do? Long rides, touring, short rec rides, commute, tour, race?
I commute 4.5 months out of the year and take short rec rides on weekends.
