    I started doing my birthday rides 36 years ago, and todays was only the 4th one I didn't complete my age. I was 12 miles into my ride when at a light a woman behind me let me know I had a hole in my bibs. It wasn't bad to start but it kept growing. Thank goodness it was a tad chilly today and I wore a tee-shirt with leg and arm warmers. I was able to at least keep pulling the tee-shirt down lower as the hole got bigger. I had several people honk at me, like they've never seen an old white a** before. I decided before the hole exposed my entire a** I would head home. Oh well I guess I'm 36 this year.

    First of all, may I greet you a happy 36th birthday. Second, I hope someone gifts you with a cycling short, hahahaaah. But seriously, that's a good idea to ride a distance related to your age. Sad to say, I cannot do that because my age is already a big number and what do you think would people think of me if they see what's behind my cycling shorts? Anyway, have a good day on your natal day.

    I wish I had roads like that where I live. I live in an urban area and roads like that are just nonexistent. Those look awesome to bike on.

    Everyone is entitled to show their a** a little on their birthday.

    Last year I managed to finish 70 miles for my 70th birthday. The year before, I go 50 of the 69, but having fought 25 mph headwinds with gusts even higher for most of that 50, I ran out of "gas" and had to have the wife come get me., I did the other 19 the following day.
