    Just back into riding at 55, too many hobbies but quit riding after meeting my missus. No health issues just couch potato lifestyle. She doesn't ride, never learned how but since lately many of my friends and acquaintances have been passing I got back in the gym, called a few old riding buddies, bought a Trek Fuel and back at it. Very happy!! Looking to be more active in the riding community to help improve access for all two wheel lovers. I still have my last ride in the garage, 1998 Storm all XTR! Its a collectable

    55, but closer to 56 so rounded up. Generally I get 300+/- hours per year in on the bike. I am mostly a roadie by 3:1 ratio. More time and interest in MTBing with purchase last year of my Otso, a Mastodon and 29+ wheelset.

    Just turned 50 last week.....made it
    Been MTB'ing since '92.
    Commuted to work in my 30's to early 40's then with 3 boys in hockey/soccer etc it had me donning chauffeur/coach hats for many years.

    The youngest boy (23) is just finishing up his accounting degree, so we should be empty nesters within a year or so.

    Just got a commuter bike so I can start riding to work again....kills two birds with one stone as I have to get to work anyway, and it doesn't take any extra time in my schedule.

    The MTB's in the garage will get put into use this spring/summer as I'm going to start a Saturday morning "hey boys, let's hit the trails" routine. They have no excuse as I have bikes built up for them

    Looking forward to get spinning again and dropping some pounds.

    And last time I visited my doctor he said, "Hey, you're coming up on 50, right?"
    I said, "Yes indeed. I guess that means we will have our 'special time' together soon?"
    He chuckled, "Yup. 30 seconds of time that is well worth it.....for you, at least"

    Welcome to Big Boy age group and welcome back to MTBing. Similar story to mine, a few years back. I got back into MTBing after my kids started driving.

    I probably replied to your first poll back when I was young. I turn 70 in June and still ride almost every day on dirt or road.

    Honestly, I'm in better shape now then ten years ago. Just finished a 79 day ski season including steep and deep in Alaska.

    I also weened myself off MTBR a few years ago and only came back today looking for some info on the Diamondback Mason 2 27.5+ hardtail.

    I am 61 and i recently added a HT 27.5x3.0 to my fat and 29 mountain. I enjoy it a lot. So find a brand that fits you is my suggestion and go for it. Without a car, i too ride most days, life is nice

    I'm 57, MTBing since ~'83.

    Retired a bit over a month ago after 29 years in IT for the same company. I passed on two previous buyout offers - wasn't quite ready and wasn't sure enough that savings would be enough to live the way I wanted to live (which isn't all that extravagant).

    Then another buyout offer came early this year, and I took it. This time the time was right. I was getting a bit burned out and I knew that if I passed again, I'd instantly regret it.

    And let me tell you, retirement is *great*. Now I ride whenever I want, as long as I want.

    For now, I'm purposely keeping my commitments few, and enjoying the freedom. I expect I'll get more involved in things later on.

    Okay, I voted again. Nothing like feeling old TWICE !
    Had to check this new thread out because I figured it was set up for those that survived 50 and beyond ..... I'm 57 til November.

    I'm slipping I guess, just ordered a 30t ring for my 1x11 but soon to pack 26# on it for a camping expedition. The last packed ride (plus 30#) kicked my gusto so I'm trying a new tactic.
    bachman must spread some Reputation around before giving it to himself again.
