All my life I've been drawn to a bike. Finally at 58 I took the Rider's Edge class. Didn't pass it! Dropped the bike on my foot and nearly broke a toe. Came away thinking this maybe wasn't for me, but I couldn't stop thinking about it. Finally bought a baby 250. Scared to death for the first 500 miles. Moved up to a 650 Silverado this May. 2000 miles and counting! Riding has given me the freedom to be the woman I've always longed to be! I'll be 60 in a couple of weeks. It's never too late to answer the call of the wind, the road, and the ride!

Hurray for you!!! I plan to get a bike next spring - can't wait! Age is simply a number that people pay too much attention to! If there's a will, there's a way! Always!

Congratulations on starting something (ANYTHING!) new at an "advanced" age. Personally, I've just come back to riding at 50 and am loving it both for what it is, but also the very fact I did it.

Canyon; That is too cool! I am in my 50's and thinking I may be interested in a bike myself. Not sure yet though. You go girl! Have fun and your too cute too.
