    I thought I would give up cycling at 40 - then 50 ....Im still pedalling at 54 years of age ! - probably enjoying it more than ever....

    So when do you plan to call it a day ?

    When I physically can't ride the trikes. I'm 66 and have had a bad year health-wise, but am slowly getting back out on the trike! I plan to ride until I can't. As simple as that.

    I don't plan to quit, but I desperately need to find a way to up my monthly mileage before it appears that I have quit by default.

    I'm 65 and been on a bike since I needed stabilisers.
    When the day comes, as come it will; that I can't cock my leg over the crossbar.
    Then I'll buy a step-through.

    I plan to buy more expensive bikes each year in an attempt to counteract my physical deterioration as I get older. By my calculations I should be minted by the time i'm 70 and I will finally be able to afford a Pinarello by then.

    If I had a pound for every cyclist I have known who say they will never quit and have, then I would be as rich as Markymark
