Any other over 50s interested in this event (http://www.nvso.us/general_information.htm)? I did this last year and will sign up again this year even though the cycling is the day after the Civil War Century.

Time Event Location
8 am Cycling 10K (http://app.strava.com/activities/22172449) (sign in by 7:30 am) No. Fauquier Comm. Park, Marshall, VA
9 am Cycling 20K (http://app.strava.com/activities/22172461) (sign in by 8:30 am) No. Fauquier Comm. Park

The starting location is the same for 2013, but I don't know anything about the final route. The 2012 routes were an on road loop from the park, twice around it for the 20 k,and I have linked my Strava reports above.

Participants are required to reside in one of the following jurisdictions: Cities of Alexandria, Falls Church or Fairfax and the Counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudoun or Prince William and be 50 years of age or older as of December 31, 2013. Registration opens on July 1 and closes on August 23. Cost is $12.

OMG. I am now a senior. Let me sit in the corner and sob for a moment.

But. They have an event in Wii Bowling! Fun! Except it is scheduled when I have to be at work. If I'm senior, why do I still have to work?!


P.S. In all seriousness, I bet there is some fast company at the Senior Olympics. Allez consularrider!
