On the ski hills, on the bike trails, and thru life in general


Mike is mostly retired but tries to stay young by skiing and biking, oftentimes beyond his limited ability.  Being a member of the Rocky Mountain Seniors Ski Club (www.seniorsski.com), he gets ample opportunity to share his recreational choices with many other like-minded seniors.

The title of this blog is really a misnomer since anyone who has been on this planet for 60+ years knows that aging, and keeping active, is a constant uphill struggle.  Maybe that is why alpine skiing is so enjoyable now, because it may be the only time that gravity actually works in my favour.  Alas, the biking part is the summer yang to the winter yin.  Climbing the Edmonton river valley switchbacks and dirt trails, not to mention mountain passes in the Rockies, is just leg-burning, lung-busting, hard work that focuses the mind and humbles the soul.  But the downhill cruisin’ part makes it all worthwhile.
