GS is sold.  Spurs have been hung on the wall.  Enjoyed riding with a bunch of you guys.  This isn't deja vu all over again.  Gonna miss riding but for a lot of reasons this is the best decision.  Back issues returned since the last time I quit, but at least I got a couple of years riding in after I quit the last time.

Always hate to see a rider have to hang it up. One of our older members recently turned 90 and had stopped riding earlier this year.

Yep, I had to have a serious discussion with myself on this. Of course, I am the only one who will listen to me. LOL Riding was the number one pleasure I have had in my life for many years.  Health was the primary reason.  Not so much that I  couldn't ride, I can, but too many risk factors came in to play.
