    I went back to driving in 2012 and continued cycling.

    70 and still going, although, not as far or as fast. I see no need to "plan" an end date, but, I suppose, a time will come.......

    think my mother is still doing the best part of 2000 a year and she's 80 - mind you its only 2 or 3 miles 2 or 3 times a day, and its no very quick. Although I think shhe managed a 120 in a week hen she was in Germany earlier in the year.
    I will be more than happy if i can maage the same in another 27 years time

    Realistically when I can't ride anymore.
    I am 57 and commute to work daily whatever the weather and ride for pleasure as well.i do get aching legs a little more often nowadays but still enjoy every minute on the bike.My body will tell me when I have to stop.

    I will give up my bike when they peel my cold dead fingers from around it

    booze and cake probably out cycling

    I think I'd deteriorate physically and mentally if I stopped cycling, so have no plans to stop ever.

  11. I'm 59 and just getting ready for TCR next year. My trainer is my father in law who is 84 and is a bit faster than me ^_^

    Some of this is not quite true. But I'm not saying which bit. :laugh:

    I hope to move down your way-ish. Riding away from me should get your miles up.

    Some of you children are quite pathetic. There are ones about 30 years younger than me talking about being too old. I have adapted but I will only give up when I fall off into a wooden box. I still do 30 or so miles with no problem but lack of time to get further. My projected camping trip to Barra is still on for next year as the weather and an unexpected health problem plus a death in the family stopped it this year.

    The Touring Car Racing?

    Never crosses my mind about stopping, I expect I won't have any say in it.
