    I hear you, same here. The cars are a bit of a problem and cycling is better for knees and joints.

    That’s why I got a gravel bike to be able to ride of foot paths and gravel roads, off the traffic and exhaust fumes.

    My brother-in-law wants me to do the same thing. Bikes are now made as a cross between road and gravel, and not as a mountain bike.

    That’s exactly right. I do have a friend who is a hardcore cyclist. He’s doing these 16 hrs road races, riding the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia courses ahead of the races etc. So he’s really committed. Even he’s bought a gravel bike.

    I think they come in three levels: road bike (basic road racer), cyclo-cross bike (racer with disc brakes, little wider tyres, slightly more upright riding position), gravel bike (similar tyres w/ profile, disc brakes, adjusted gear ratio, very slight saddle and/ or steering suspension, slightly more upright riding position).

    Mine is a gravel bike, Specialized Diverge. There are many great brands and also custom manufacturers.

    Maybe not all of it.

    As you get older, more disposable income = better audio equipment & improved wine quality.

    Physically I agree. As the saying goes, "My brain writes checks my body can't cash any more".
