Hey, senior people, you can do more than walk

“When you’re in your 60s, you may want to go out for a vigorous 30-minute walk, while when you’re in your 90s, you might try to lift your legs in a wheelchair.”

You can find those words of wisdom in a Chicago Tribune article. The source is Dr. Cheryl Phillips, president of the American Geriatrics Society.

Talk about setting the bar low.

When I reach my 60s and later years, I want to be on my bicycle. I’ve ridden with a lot of “seniors” and been dropped by more than a few.

A little walk is nice now and then, yes, but give me a road with some rolling hills and even a few hard climbs.

That will make a person feel like a kid again.

    Right or perhaps more appropriate is, RIDE on!
