Mick, I am 58 and cycle regularly on my racing bike. best way to stay fit. Do it on the "good" days, don't push yourself on the "bad" days. Physical fitness helps me deal with Crohn's and being and looking fit gives me an edge on those fat healthy people.

Mind you, I have closed my business and was lucky to be able to dump things I don't need and keep things I enjoy. That old spoon theory again.
