73rd Birthday Ride

I just went for a 73rd Birthday Ride! It was hot (felt like 98ļ F yesterday) so I didn't ride far but I did get out.

A very VERY Happy Birthday...

Well done mate. Let's hope all us youngsters are still riding when we get to those giddy highs..

Cheerio,

Ace (as we used to say in the '60's).

That gives me hope.

Happy Birthday.

Twenty some years ago I did an Edelweiss Bike Tour in Spain. One of the guys who was ridding with us was in his 80's. He was taking pictures for BMWMOA. He would blow by us, park up the road, get his camera gear out, and shoot pictures as we passed. In a few minutes he would blow by us again and do the same thing all over again. I thought I was decent rider back then. I had been to several track days. I had ridden in the Alps. I thought I was pretty good . . . but I couldn't keep up with that guy. I hope that I am still riding in my 80's.

Happy Birthday Mr. GFSPENSER. Hats of to you for your youthful courage. I fear my motorized vehicle will be an electric wheel chair when I am 73.. lol
