    Great article! I am 67 and have been biking for over 40 years. I try to ride 5 to 6 times per week. I cannot ride as fast or as long as I once could but last year I rode 900 miles. I am on pace to beat that milage this year. When I see my doctor for annual physicals the last thing he says when I leave is to “keep biking” so keep taking his advice.

    I’m a 60 yo male and I have been cycling practically every weekend throughout the year for the last 8 years or so.
    I have made this a disciplined regime, something I MUST do. On a good day I cycle over 50 kms but at my own happy pace although I push myself. I used to jog frequently as well but my knee ligaments are playing up a bit so I now only cycle. My sleep quality is very good most of the time, my food intake is of good portions for my age eating mainly crunchie salads and chicken breast which is lean. I seldom eat red meat. I recommend anyone in my age group to make cycling a regular past time, you will feel great

    im 66 and ride at least 2 times a week.ive been riding for 6 years increasing the miles i ride over the years.what a great exersize bicycling is.if you stick with it for awhile you will notice how your legs will get strong and rock hard and your overall body mobility will increase and so will your balance.dont let the cold stop you from riding either.just layer up and go go go.

    I am 84 yrs. old and ride my ebike (lowest assist setting) 25-to-30 miles 5-to-6 days per week over moderately hilly terrain. I literally feel deprived when weather or other circumstances prevent me from riding. Without question it makes me feel invigorated and definitely improves my overall attitude.

    It’s very interesting and helpful! Especially the tips, they are so great and not only useful, but neccessary I think. But they also take time to get used to and process. But I think we totally can, right? Thanks again. Looking for your next posts.

    Early morning cycling is good for people of all ages. Your information totally right and there is no any doubt about it. Thanks for the awareness.

    My grandkids got me a t-shirt that says “A cycling grandpa never gets old.” Maybe that’s true. I’m 88, have been cycling somewhat seriously for 50+ years. As of today (9/19) I have 1300+ miles for the year – should make my 1600 mile goal.

    My age is 69 yrs. I regularly ride to hills in Mysore. India covering 50 kms. and week ends I go for long ride with our young cyclist to around 100 to 150 kms. I feel what all health benefits mentioned in the article I have attained from 4 yrs of active cycling.

    I’m 80 and live in beautiful Wiltshire where there are many country lanes and paths. However getting to them is potentially dangerous as, despite hi vis tabards and flashing lights, cyclists seem invisible to many motorists and there seems no solution; I don’t ride on pavements after being hit by a youthful cyclist as I alighted from a bus!

      Sorry to hear about the trouble getting to the great cycling paths. I hope you’re either able to find a safe route there, or able to get there some other way so you can enjoy the ride.
