    If I make it to next Saturday...

    I'll be 56. Been doing this for about five years now. When I bought my first MTB, a Giant Rincon, I asked the shop owner (who is now a friend and riding mate) "where's the kickstand?" to which he replied "I'll get that for you right now!"

    Man I LOVE this!! Oh, the bike shop is Quality Bike in Savannah,GA.

    I'll be 52 in 6 weeks. Started mtn biking this summer (roadie for 7 years). Even though I've only been mtn biking for 3 months I love it. Not worth crap at it, but it's huge fun.

    Turned 30 today, Im leaving the office in a few for a nice b-day ride. MTB'ing has made me feel younger every year since I started riding regularly. My snowboarding skills have fallen off a little bit, only on the park stuff though.

    Dead thread revival!! Oh well I guess it's less then a year old...

    Anyways. I'm 20. Been riding since I was 16ish. XC almost exclusively for the first couple years... now it's mostly AM, DH, and Urban/DJ stuff around campus.
    Speed has never killed anybody. Suddenly becoming stationary... that's what gets you.

    59, still learning new techniques and bigger jumps and drops. Other than trail riding Sting-Rays and cruiser bikes on Marin County trails and dirt jumps as a kid in the '50's and '60's, adding 3 speed derailleurs to 3 speed Bendix hubs in '64 or '65. I got into surfing for a couple decades. I (re)started trail riding in '82, something I could schedule with a normal job.

    55 and loving every minute of it. Do some road biking too, but mountain biking is the bomb. Rode 14 miles (mountain) with friends this morning. What a blast!! Started seriously biking again at the end of August and try to go 3 or 4 times a week. Getting significantly stronger every ride!!

    I'll be 47 next month. A year and a half of riding mtb. I'm not ever going to be one of these 50-miles-&-5000-feet-elevation-gain-in-one-day guys, but I'm now in the best shape of my life. I ride every day now, about half trail rides and half road rides. Been on the trail four of the last five days, including two night rides. Riding mtb gives me something to look forward to every day.

    I think I have been around here too long. I have moved up one poll category age bracket since I joined MTBR and I have had 2 b-days since this poll started.

    I meant it was The Thread being 1 year older (I still have another 8 weeks to wait for mine).
    Of course, like tons of threads, but few deal with "age", so I thought it'd be fun.

    Same here.

    I too was surprised at the age of those who actually responded.

    Got into riding at around 37, 2 bikes in 1st two years and in my case, both were Fishers.

    Me. I'm 18 and I like a good party as good as the next college kid but I am not much of a partier, as I actually like doing things during the day, and almost never sleep in past 10:00. Although today is was more like 12 cuz i was out till 4 last night, whatever its freezing outside and I can ride my trainer anytime of the day.

    22 Here. I've been commuting and riding singletrack for two years now. I find my technical ability has grown over the two years, but I've got a long way to go. Commuting has definately heldped get in shape for the trails.

    45 here. Just started riding a mountain bike in 2008, and have fallen in love with it. Selling my Trek 6000 in the spring and I'm curently building up a Cannondale Rize 4 with a bunch of carbon goodness. Like others here it's helped me get off my ass and lose 35lbs.

    42 - Been Mtn Biking since the age of 16 an on a bike since the age of 5.

    I've be riding hard for the past 3 years (since I moved back to CA). I feel great and continue to get into better shape with each ride. Trail rash heals slower and scars more, but otherwise I feel like a kid.

    Turning 36 in March... started freestyle BMX when I was 14. Did some shows and got to experience the birth of street riding. The level of BMX nowadays is beyond anything we could've ever dreamed of.

    I ride 5-7 days a week and raced cyclocross, but dropped the season due to heavy burnout.

    I ride everything - road, MTB, 'cross, BMX... you name it, I have a bike for it.

    I'm 48 and feel like I'm 28!

    Though I'm still as passionate and energetic as ever...I admit that things do a get a little harder as you get older. It's an almost undefinable "slowing down" that just happens.

    When I see young guys strutting around doing amazing things, I tend to just smile and say "Sure—but let's see if you're still doing that in 20 years!" LOL In my opinion, the majority of people biking hard in their 20s will NOT be doing it by the time they hit 50.

    I'm sorry, but I believe guys get better with age if they stick with it and be consistent. You should see the 45+ racers get going - most of them can SMOKE guys 20 years younger than them. The problem with older guys is they become complacent and lifestyle, career, etc. and all that "busy work" takes priority to wellness. Once you lose it, it gets lost HARD. Learned that coming back to BMX 4 years ago.

    There is definetely an age cut-off for fitness, but I see guys SMOKING climbs and bombing with grey hair. Older riders don't get the sympathy vote from me, or the "You rock for being old and doing it!" because A LOT of them are super fast and super fit and will smoke my a$$ in a heartbeat. I never underestimate older riders when I'm on the trail. Never. More so on the road rides.

    65, I feel left out, you stopped at 50 on the poll. I hope you all are still riding at my age, I still bounce off the ground/trees, it only proves my bones are still strong.
    I rode 100 miles last week in Michigan, half on the road, the best half on the trail, the most exciting thing about riding on the road is watching the odo click another mile, the most exciting thing about mountain biking, jumps, getting air, making a mean climb, berms, downhills, well EVERYTHING !!!!!

    53 and kicking youngsters butts! Especially on the mountain bike. Decades of racing dirt bikes in the woods gives me an unfair advantage. Yup, they can get me on the uphills but I catch up on the downhills Just bomb away! Downhill reminds me so much of a dirt bike. They think I'm nuts
    Woods riding a dirt bike was a blast. Our favorite thing to do was to get young, fast Motocrossers and take them on a woods ride. We'd have them crying for Momma within 5 miles.

    I'll be 58 this year and last November I had the pleasure of riding with the previous blogger Jack Coul and he can still hammer for a guy who is 72. He'd kick a lot of the young guys butts out there!

    52..been riding XC for nearly 20 years now. Used to play lots of ice/roller hockey and began to mtb in the off season to stay fit. And I thought hockey was an expensive sport! My youngest and oldest riding pals are aged 30 and 62.

    I'm 18. I've been riding bikes since I was a boy. It's until now I've wanted to take it a bit more serious and ride the trails. For fitness and hobby reasons.

    Will you still need me, will you still feed me?

    I'm 64 and ride, hike, ski, and paddle. Not so fast anymore and I bike hike up big hills.

    I just got new Madshus Annums and Voile Switchbacks because I wear out my skis in two or three years. Skins last a decade!

    Specialized FSRXC and a very old and worn trek 850.

    Just turned 38 in January. This will be my second race season and I'm the best shape I've ever been, started training and racing last year, down to 173lbs from 232lbs. I have lots of goals for this year....... 6 Hour solo endurance race, 100 mile solo endurance race, 100 mile road ride and hit some podiums in the XC season this fall.

    And even better, my 11 year-old son caught the bug with me and progressing awesomely, he's already done a 12 hour endurace race (team) this year and his doing a 6 hour endurance race (team) later this month.....which will also be my debut solo in an endurance race.

    I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!
