A man in his 60's is not elderly, under this century's definition, he is middle aged. Certainly, thousands of more mature adults in this age band enjoy cycling, hiking and jogging. I have yet to meet an elderly 70 year old. I walk 3x per week with a group whose average age is in their 80's and I know they would be mightily offended by your definition. Please refrain from type casting people by some irrelevant fact.
