Absolutely. One of my passions. I have a cruiser/comfort bike and a hybrid. I just put a flat bar road bike on layaway for my birthday in a few months.

I prefer to ride the local railtrails away from traffic, though I have ridden some out the door to the grocery down the street and around the residential areas for fitness.

This and walking are my thing. I need to do more of both. Kinda slacked off here of late.

I am 63. Been riding since age 5.

We sure do, we use them on multiple surfaces. Plus they are great for taking the dogs on a run.

Yikes! I had two friends have serious crashes cycleing due their dogs crossing in front of their bikes. I hope you are not using a lease while riding

I mountain bike. Much safer than road biking. I custom built both of my bikes as well as Mrs5150’s Hardtail. We are fortunate to have a dirt trail a 100 yards from our house.

They are on a leash, and have a healthy respect not to cross the wheel.

We tried a lease, but our attorneys said it is not valid.

Unless one is on private property, riding a bike with a tethered dog is unsafe as irresponsible.

Yay! Our neighborhood is private property.


Not sure how that makes or disputes the safety issue.

Or have you given up this possibly-risky sport?

(Mathjak, I know you race competitively, but we know you and the missus are outliers! )
I've never stopped. I'm 63. BF does serious single-track MTB racing, but I just do recreational riding. 10-20 miles is what we usually do when we ride together (he does much longer mileage for a race). I had a pretty good crash last year, but just a gash on my leg - took forever to heal but all good now. Have a gravel bike and a mb, enjoy both as often as I can. I don't try to do anything that is really risky - I leave the rocky trails and tree roots to him and his race buddies.

GuyInSD, that's an awesome bike! The light on it is fantastic, like a work of art.
