does biking keep you

 younger,  in your outlook to life in general, only mentioned this because ive met some lovely people who really should know better at thier ages sorry rog/nina, but plus 60 and an outlook of a very young couple, somebody actually said this to me last night, and its a puzzle is it bikes or is it just that we have grown younger as we get older embracing the challenges of keeping sharp as we get older riding our bikes.

Why Younger?

As a young rider and new to the game, I look on every thing with big open eyes, constantly trying to learn things from older bikers. Every bike I go past get a nod and I will always stop to help, or talk to someone I would never talk to if they didn't have a crash helmet or leathers. To some people biking is a way of feeling younger but why would you want to feel younger? To me biking is a passion. You share the passion in the way you give information to learners like me or to help someone you have never met before. You don't know if they are a mass murderer or a office worker, but you still help. That's what biking is to me, a community of anyone.

... Off topic. No, it makes me feel older.

Mankey John:

One wants to feel younger after reaching a certain age,  because you want that wild energy back.   You don't want to ache from a number of old injuries/problems.   You want to leap out with "Yes!!!  Let's do it!" instead of thinking about the effort involved.


Most of all - particularly for those of us old before our time - we recall how enthusiastic and full of hope we were, instead of being riddled with cynicism. 

Enjoy and appreciate being young mate,  it'll be over before you can look around.  But I know where you're coming from,  because I wished to get through the frustrations that being  young pose asap (eg, no money, no place to live, restricted licence etc. etc.).  It'll happen long before you've realised what you wanted in the first place.
