Not sure I agree with much of that - at 68 I usually get to the gym 3 times a week for 1 hr weights sessions in order to maintain muscle tone and bone density. I don't do massive weight but 2kg....lightweights!
Don't see why we need a high protein diet either - balanced is best...
We need pictures!
Blimey. I hadn't been aware that there was a thread for the ancient and incontinent.
Where's you been? I was worried! 😀
Out looking for a supplier of Wether’s Originals.
You could try self-identifying as 20 years younger like that Dutch geezer who said that it would enhance his chances on Tinder
I've just ordered a bike for my father - he's 71, and can still manage to get hos leg over the cross bar.
Pinnacle Lithium Alfine 8 incoming. He borrowed my Cross Check Rohloff conversion and liked it, but maybe not the price.

I've missed 3 weeks of riding. Chest infection, work, can't be arsedness. Blimey. Talk about use it or lose it. After today's comeback ride it's 7.30pm and I'm seriously considering going to bed. I've been here before and know I can find my mojo again but it's a bit scary to think of the consequences of a longer lay off.
Anyway I can't go to bed now...double Coronation Street tonight.
I've got more bikes than I've ever owned and I do less miles than I've ever rode.
I need less bikes and more miles.
I'd get more space in my shed and less stress in my waistband.
It'll be a few years before I can officially join this thread, but thought I should give my father some credit. He's 88 and has a severe visual impairment (registered blind), but bought himself a scooter last year to go to the shops each day to try to keep fit. That's all.
Totally agree with the sentiments of those first two lines....luckily the third has still to catch me...
Yes! that's the spirit for sure....
