Did my annual birthday at Highland ride (my 59th) and it gets harder every year. Though HamHock is 72 we still did it under 2 1/2 hours.
Really proud of the 'ol coot (he did crash on one of the rocky down hills) and the new trail markers are really nice.
Awesome and inspirational for all of us young and old.
I'm only 35 and get sick of hearing that mt. biking at my age is silly and just wait until you are 50.... blah blah, blah.
They find it hard to believe that I run into more people my age and older on trails, than younger people.
I think people say this crap to justify sitting on thier lazy *beep* at any age they may be.
And a great job to your friend. I won't tell you good job though; You're still too young to be congratulated!
