At 55 years old (nearly 56) I still like to think I can either hang with or beat younger guys either on singletrack or fast fireroads,nice curvy pavement.
The older guys are usually the harder ones to pull away from on corners.
But as far as blasting along in a straightline wide open........Ive never been into that much on the street,there's no point to it.
And the tickets involved can shut you down
Some bikes around at times
