I turn 72 years old on Saturday and have been an enthusiastic road cyclist for some 15 years now. I am overweight and really bad at cycling and too often have to deal with the starin of trying to understand why I abuse myself on the bike - especially on race days, of which there have been too many. It always seems easier before the start line and the strategy never works - no matter how many energy bars or bananas I consume.
I try not to disappoint my fans and repeatedly have to remind them of the pressure of their expectations on my psyche. And at my age, it is difficult to grow hair - black or white! It just doesn't look good in the pictures! Of course I am also reminded that I need help dealing with the paparazzi - they just wont leave me alone no matter how quietly I try to compete.
So from here on in, I will no longer sign any more autographs. I will no longer provide these "fans" with the opportunity to profit off my efforts. It is time for me to take my career seriously, without the distraction of outside actors, out to make a quick buck from my good name. I'm sure you'll understand.
I have therefor decided to join the Strava Community to share myself with people who care, and to inspire that Next Generation of overweight, shaved and primed athletes so that they can continue the proud tradition of pedaling along for the good of Humanity and SAVE THIS PLANET.
So now I greet you with humility and love - until next time! May the force be with you.
