The Old Guy Bicycle Blog

The Old Guy
Hi. My name is Bruce Bussell. I am 68 years old and am an avid touring cyclist. I live in Lubbock, Texas but have rode my bicycle thousands of miles around parts of the country.

I am starting this blog to show people my age that you can be active and ride farther than you ever dreamed you can ride.

During 12 very hot days in July, 2020 I rode my bicycle 962 miles from Texhoma, Oklahoma to South Padre Island. In the summer of 2016, I pedaled over 1050 miles in 19 days from Lubbock to Pensacola, Florida.

I have rode so many multi-day tours that I don't have space to cover them all here. Anyone can do this. In fact, just a few years ago I weighed 85 pounds more than I do now. 

I'm going to share all I can about equipment, training, nutrition, and everything else I can think of to help you do this too.

My next post will be thoughts on why there is no better experience than riding a bicycle across the open road. Stay tuned.

Here is the next post of my blog: What Makes A Long Time Cyclist Ride into His Old Age
