Today I’m 70 and feel good again apart from sore arm still. Apparently over 65s this year having a different stronger dose age so ma...

Re: 50 years ago

Have a great time Mick revisiting old places, situations and memories. Make new ones too.

My brother trained on Raleigh in mid 1970s, he loved it. He died two weeks ago, the veterans in Cardiff doing something musical at his funeral.

Re: Handwriting

I love writing with a good fountain pen. In fact I have four fountain pens gathered over the years and still use them all, each has a different colour ink. I am proficient on key board but there is something sensual for me in writing with a pen full of flowing ink. The eldest pen must be about 50 no...

Re: Where are you going tomorrow?

24=mile ride to Mudeford from Southampton, late lunch at the Noisy Lobster on front. Stay overnight in a great guest house we know then back home Saturday. Hubby with cancer can only manage 25-30 miles at a time but he’s doing great. YD

Re: What shorts?

Hi,

My hubby has been renewing his cycling clothes and came upon Madison. They look tailored, are shower proof and he says they are very comfy, so comfy he’s bought a second pair.

Yes Mick, that’s right as far as I’m aware. I do know that spelled is an acceptable alternative.

Re: More Marathon woes

Sorry to read these messages about Schwalbe as I’ve had years of use. My current tyres Marathon have covered about 7000 miles with no punctures. The previous gave me 10000 miles plus with 1 puncture.

I’ve been wearing Corrine Dennis shorts, 3/4s and full length leggings for years now. Find them very comfortable.

Re: cycliing and ageing

Agree with astonish that’s 60 isn’t elderly. I’m approaching 70 and my Doc says I’m not counted as elderly until my body starts to break down. She urges us to keep cycling, walking and weights work to keep ‘elderly’ at bay as long as we can.

Re: What is stopping women from cycling?

Coming up 70 in October I have cycled since I was approx 9 years old with a few gaps in between and long may it continue. I cannot do the miles I used to but average 3000 a year. At no time have i felt afraid to get on my bike, but now I’m wary about getting in the car. In my 40s I had a motorbike b...
