A few days back, there was a report on the local newspaper's website that a 90-year-old cyclist was involved in an accident. Apparently he was riding against traffic, and collided with a car.
THAT is kinda scary! A 90-year-old guy is liable to break instead of bending. And - I've gotta think he hasn't been riding against traffic for 80-plus years, or he sure wouldn't've lasted so long. (I had a near-miss with a 20-something against-traffic dope on a bike just earlier today, on Glenwood. I sure wish he'd get a ticket and a talkin-to by the law enforcement people!)
Back to the topic...
Here's my question: "Do people quit riding bikes because they get old, or do they get old because they quit riding bikes?"
