hello mam,
since if you have already been cycling from a long time it could have been ok to continue. but it is not advisable to start cycling at this age. better walk briskly for 20 mins daily rather than cycling, it will help you maintain good health. my advice is not to start cycling by this age. take care. have a healthy life mam!
