Posted this in another thread, should have been here. In response to a joke about getting an E-bike if you're old:
Jokes aside, cycling is a low impact aerobic activity. Ride a pedal bike till you die. It's inherently a perfect old person activity, like water aerobics for the hardcore 🤘 except beneficial for balance and cognition too. Look at pictures of pre-capitolism China and the ancient old people happily riding their bikes around.
Personally I'll ride a bicycle until I'm no longer able to pedal, and then realistically, I expect to park the bike and keel over in short order.
Think the trails are dumbed down now, wait till we're all 80 and shaping the trails to suit us 😅
