Experienced riders

Today a rider, and this person is a rider, stops in to pick up his bike.  The bike needed a basic tune up and a crank arm replaced.  The rider and I start a conversation about his bike and then it quickly leads into his age.  This guy is 83 years old and riding strong.  His bike is littered with at least 5 tickets from the St. Paul Classic Bike Tour.  A couple of years ago, on the Habitat 500 Bike Ride, I met another rider in his late 80’s.  Just two examples of where I want, hope, to be when I reach that point in my life.  The customer today tells me “you’ve got a long way to go to get to my point.”  To which I responded “yes, but I can, at least, see that point and aim for it.”
