    50th Birthday Ride

    Today is my 50th birthday. I didn't start work until noon so I gave myself the gift of an early morning ride. The leaves are starting to fall on the trail but it was a beautiful ride

    Happy birthday! May you enjoy many more years of happy riding and awesome trails!
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    Nice going, Kary. Way to represent the fossils

    Mine happened between to biking destinations on a road trip. Stroke of midnight I was burning down the highway under a bright moon, counting my lucky stars.

    Cheers and beers...to many more!

    Happy birthday!

    My 50th is this month too, so I'm feeling all the anguish you just experienced!

    (Damn happy I'm able to ride as hard as I can. I sure don't feel old when out on the bike.)

    Thank you all. Had to work yesterday afternoon but was off today so went for a longer ride today. The ride was a great way for me to celebrate my birthday.
    Thank you all again

    Aloha, awesome Kary!! Congrats!! I'm gettin' close to my 49th, headed to Southern CA to meet up with some friends to celebrate and ride and demo bikes. Starting to contemplate what I'm going to do for my 50th. Have an awesome, fun, safe weekend.

    Happy birthday! I turn 50 next month. I think I'll do the same thing, but take the whole day off and go riding.

    My 50th was last December, but I went big with a celebratory ride of the Kokopelli Trail Here's a blog post describing the last day:

    For a year leading up to my 50th Birthday I said what I wanted for the 50th B'Day was for my 17 year old daughter to go for a ride with me. When the big day came we went out for a nice ride she realized how enjoyable Mountain Biking is. When she went off to University she played on the University Soccer team so she couldn't ride but once she graduated she started riding and now she's an avid rider. I can hardly keep up she's so fast. Now she rides with her buddies at Whistler Bike Park! I ride all the time but that was a special day.
