cycling and mid-life crisis


Just came across this story in The Guardian and thought I'd post it here, since it's kind of a hot topic these days: men in "mid-life crisis" stage buying expensive bicycles, where 20 years ago they'd have bought sports cars.  Saw a similar article recently in the NY Times, where they called cycling "the new golf."  Anyways, personally I find it kind of interesting, especially since I'm in the right age group.  Usually my thoughts are along the lines of the third commenter, who says "I've been a keen cyclist since my youth."  Still, given this trend, I can't help but wonder sometimes what's driving my own passion to ride.  Anyways, interesting trend, interesting story.
