    …in over 10 years and got my ass kicked. Man I suck. Hahaha. Crashed/fell a bunch of times. Walked some spots… I blame yesterday’s rain. Yeah that’s it Banged my left knee real good and was totally knackered for the ride home. I ran into a couple of gents setting up for the Wild Betty race tonight as well as I ambled my way through. My bike is a time capsule. Tucked away in storage my ’04 C-dale Prophet was all dusted off and tuned up last week. Speaking of which I tore the boot on my Lefty MAX, plus I think I blew an oil seal in it as well. I was able to find and order those parts. But still, as I sit here and type this I can’t wait to go out for another ride tomorrow. Anyways…if you see a 45 year old dad bashing through the Don in the days ahead. That would be me. Feel free to say hello.

    Ha ha ha @tetters, sounds about right!

    Welcome to RFG. Lots of amazing people around here who share the same passion (and pain at times).

    No country for old men? Not at all. A paceline went ripping by me one day this summer on catalyst, all 50+. Speaking for myself only, some riders in the valley are older than they look. And I still have and occasionally ride my vintage bike as well, it’s all good.
