Didier, thank you for sharing this great story. Stan Dibben "showed him the stones" in more ways than one!

Well worth the watch. That little "op-doc" had me grinning ear-to-ear from beginning to end. People sometimes ask me why do I do it? Why do I cast aside all good reason and common sense and continue to ride a bike into my middle age?

Why indeed. This old coot nails it.

Merged the three threads on this cool video.

I hope to be doing this when I'm that old, if I make it that far.
