    I am at 12 years so far. Wife isn't into riding though - she has bad knees so puts a hamper into getting her into the sport. Wish she would go on vacation with me but would have to find something she would like to do as being a dedicated shuttle bunny wouldn't go well with her. LOL.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    Congrats to you guys, too. My wife started mountain biking when she turned 58....then said, "Why did you let me wait so long to do this?" Funny, I remember inviting her out to ride before that.

    Congrats on bucking the trend of disposable relationships! 32 in July for me and my bride. She rides a little on easy stuff, drops me off for downhills as long as the road is paved and snow-free and best of all, she strongly encourages me to get out of the house to ride as often as I want! Hmmmm; I wonder what that means?

    Perfect and such a sweet sentiment. Wishing you many flow trails in the years ahead with just enough gnar & tech to keep things interesting, with no flats, mechanicals or dropped chains.

    Good on you both...and to many more!!

    We celebrated our 21st in Feb. ( + 3 living in sin )= 24 total. She rides a Foes FXR and downhills with me on vacation at Angel Fire / Winter Park / Keystone, depending where we are. She's mean in the kitchen, a super mom and loving wife, and the bread winner! I love my life....I mean wife!

    CONGRATS!!

    Way to go!

    3 years ago I married the guy that introduced me to mtb. He's my best friend, and riding partner. I wish we could have met 30 years ago... it's been a very fast the learning curve. Hope we are still riding in 30 years

    July will make 37 years for my wife and I. She doesn't Mt Bike but she has started to tool around town on her bike and her favorite new accessory is one of those big fatass seats. She loves it.
    Saddle up, Effendi. We ride.
