Re: Age to hang up your saddle.

And don't forget the "extra"'s you can get nowadays and age/parkinsons/whatever catch up... Extra wheels, so balance etc stops being an issue. Assistance, so hills stop being an issue... I'm currently having a friend of mine build a todpole trike for my dad, for exactly this reason. Too m...
