I have a couple of mountain bikes and ride them occasionally.

Bikes are not obsolete in America. They are extremely popular and probably more popular
today than ever before.

You need an electric bike Tas!.

My old (Normal) bike got stolen for the 3rd time, So now im on a monthly subscription with Copenhagen's electrical city bikes.

Going uphill on the steepest climbs in Copenhagen, Almost makes you feel like Lance armstrong on extra doping. Considered buying a yellow jersey or at least the red-dotted mountain one, Just for the occasion.

Get one of them, And you'll be overtaking those 20 year old studs with only one hand on the handlebar :mrgreen:

In our country...Bicycle still exist...It is the other way options for a transportation...There is no need for buying the gas and diesel in order to ride...You can save a money in your pocket....Just maintain with your body built Especially those ladies and mens whose conscious for their appearance so They kept ride on it during the morning time and Help improved our heart beat into a normal way....Even my dad whose age at 83 years old....Still used his own bicycle everyday and He noticed that it has a changes for his muscles... He became strong and healthy... It disappeared the muscle pains on his knees at all ....so Therefore bicycle its a healthy lifestyles for those senior citizen and any bracket age around the world :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

There is a 98 year old guy in my club who was already talking about hanging up his wheels when I first joined...thirty years ago.

In those days, I did the short rides, and he did the long rides. These days, I do the long rides and he does the short rides, but he's still there.

Well, I live in a rural area where a bike would not be feasible to go to town and back. Bikes are great though! I'm still waiting on my Transporter! 8-)
