To the 60+ year-old man riding down Vancouver and then east on Tillamook: You sir are a badass! I'm at least half your age and until two days ago I considered myself in pretty good shape. I struggled to keep up with you for about 10 minutes but it was clear from the start you are made out of sturdier things than I. I finally caught up with you at a stoplight and before I could catch my breath enough to compliment your awesomeness the light turned green and you were gone like a rocket.
I hope I am half as active as you are when I am in my 60's.
