There seems to be a large portion of older (50+) riders with facial hair. Anywone else noticed.

Do you mean bushy eyebrows, nose and ear hair?

I think when we go bald on top it just relocates!

Everytime that a man has sex he loses a hair on the top of his head and it pops out somewhere else.
So that's why I'm so freakin' bald! nmbburgoyne26

I'm in that age group, and I've had a mustache since I grew it in Vietnam in 1968. Just shaved it off a few weeks ago--it was VERY fashionable in college in the '70s, but it began to dawn on me that all the mustaches I was seeing lately were gray. I don't mind being gray (better than bald, like my father and brother), but it was starting to seem to me like the equivalent of a woman still wearing beehive hair because she had it in high school.
My wife liked the 'stache, and had never seen my upper lip. She wants me to grow it back. I told her I would if she'd rat her hair. Thank God she didn't....

49 - thick head of close-cropped hair, never had a beard or mustache in my entire life (driven mainly by the fact that I am a pretty hairless guy.)

Among the 100 or so guys that work for me - some older guys have full beards, younger guys seem to prefer goatees, the larger percentage of guys however are clean-shaven.

50 year old guys that ride bikes, sometimes do.
Big difference between guys that ride bikes and Bike Riders....

Facial hair was big among youth in the 70's. I have never shaved the beard since growing it 31 years ago.
