Per Tim McNamara:
If I get to my 80s and can still ride a bike, I would consider that a
pretty darned big win. I'm delighted to still be riding in my 50s.
I think your chances are pretty good. I'm in my late 70's and can
barely walk - but riding a bike has not yet become a problem
That's encouraging. I think one of the keys to being able to do those
things in our later years is to start them in our younger years and to
keep doing them. My wife is a backpacker and regularly meets people in
their 70s and 80s who are still backpacking.
Keep riding, Pete!
I hope they bring one of these

Last time I went bike touring, I didn't understand how anyone can get comfortable on an aluminum park bench
