61 on my 61 Thursday Aug 10th

Just an FYI and planning, I will be doing a 61 mile ride on Thursday August 10th to commemorate my 61st birthday. Leaving from Sam's Sports Bar at 8:30AM, a leisurely pace and a chance to enjoy some time on the bike. Route is posted below and will go thru my hometown of Portland TN where I grew up and rode my bike all over town.
Any and all are welcome to join me.

I wish I could join you. I used the ride with Harpeth for my birthday ride. I am an overachiever as I rode more miles than my age. Have a great day Woody and Happy Birthday.

The Steve Curtis (miss-)quote applies here Woody...lose 10% performance per year after 60 ;P

Steve Curtis said...

Lindsay the long held belief was 1% after 50 for average people. The latest data reported in a study is 1% after 29 for average people and it is around 2% per year for people in their 60's. Again these are average numbers. For Woody I would expect about a 10% gain per year instead of a performance loss.
