I’m grateful to be able to ride a mountain bike aggressively at my geezerly age. I’m lucky, but I’ve also learned a couple things that seem to help.
First up: low back pain.
I had my first episode of low back pain in 1988 when I was 39 years old. I was working late at night at a computer-related job in Eden Prairie, MN when suddenly, I couldn’t stand up straight. I literally had to crawl to my car to drive home to Northfield.
