However, as I move towards my sunset years I expect that pulling off such rides without power assist will become more and more difficult. I see no reason to curtail riding because of some silly purity argument regarding motor assist.
Anyone who can complete 130miles with 16,000 cumulative of climbing will always have my admiration.
