Mountain Biking After 50

Some of The Bicycle Escape staff member’s hit the trail this past weekend. This is not an uncommon occurrence but on this ride Danielle, Mike, and myself were joined by Roger. Roger, as some of you may know, is my father. While we cycle on the road together often it has been about ten years since dad has been on an off road adventure. We went to Schaeffer Farms and enjoyed fair weather and good company. It was a great reintroduction to mountain biking for my father. By the end of the ride he was crossing logs and streams with a smile. Glad to have you back Dad.

Like I was telling your Dad, he could be a lot worse off. He has a great fitness base just needs to brush up on his technical skills.

It didn't take him long to get the feel of the bike. I was impressed that he was willing to attempt a few of the log stacks.

yeah he was attempting stuff I never really try anymore.
