    Trust me, the 'fitties' thing is just like a hill - you have to start at the bottom, and it's an uphill climb, but there's always a reward for your hard work.

    I'm 47, been mountain biking for about 2 years and have seen a great improvement in my fitness (And those younger sods are still quicker than me, but I'm prepared to put up with that, in return for feeling much healthier)

    The way I look at it is 'I may be over-the-hill, but the view is great and I'm going to have one hell of a descent!'

    If you didn't learn anything today, you weren't paying attention!

    dam.... we went to Cwmcarn today, and were all slow boaters.... (a right mix of ages today from 18-50) would have been perfect for you....

    maybe next time though (see sig for our next ride details)
