My name is Dahlia and I am a Social Worker in the Pittsburgh area. One of my clients is an avid biker but can no longer bike alone. This gentlemen is in his upper 70’s and is physically able to bike and exercise but would prefer if he had someone to go with. If anyone is interested in biking some trails around the Monroeville area once or twice a month and would like a partner please post. Thanks!
I apologize. I was not making an any observations that the individual in question was incapable of a longer/more strenuous ride. Certainly there are people in his age group who can, and do, cycle at a very high level.
I was stating that I – as a potential companion on such rides – would be interested and willing to take on this role if the rides were of a certain type, e.g. park and trail type rides.
Based on my time availability, skill sets and general interests, I can’t or don’t want to do the leadville type rides. At least not as a volunteer companion.
Kudos to all those folks who ride well into their 70′s and beyond. Double kudos to those who do so at a competitive level. I hope that I fall into at least one of these groups in my lifetime.
