I just turned 80, and have been recording my cycling activities on Strava since 2019.  I like to compare my rides with other senior cyclists, and segments allow me to do that.  But, at age 80, I'm still competing segment-wise with 75 year-old cyclists.  My suggestion is to replace the 75+ age group with 75-79, 80-84 and 85-90 age groups.  This will not only make segment standings fairer for those over 79, but will also encourage older competitive cyclists to improve their conditioning.

That's great.  Hope there are enough of us "seniors" to get this suggestion implemented.  Can't see why anyone would object to it.

Good idea if there are enough over 80s

Implementing it might motivate more 80+, and certainly can't hurt.

I am 82 and would like to compare my cycling activities with others in my 80+ group. I would love to see more age groups listed. Even though so far their are only a few responses their are, I am sure, lots of us that feel the same. It took a lot of work for me to find this post, I almost gave up. I bet their are thousands of us out there that feel the same way. I think it is hard for the younger riders to believe their are so many of us 80+ riders out there. I well keep my fingers crossed that we well finally be recognized.
