After such a long journey through life, for the average person it would seem there's little more you could ask for as you approach your 91st birthday than to still be fit and healthy - time waits for no man, after all.
NSW Central Tableland's Roy Riley is far from your average person though.
Just weeks away from turning 91, Mr Riley is the oldest member of the Ulysses Club's Orange branch, every Wednesday he still kits up and joins his clubmates on their weekly ride around the region.
He has no plans of stopping either, when asked if he'll keep riding as long as he can Mr Riley's answer was simple - "bloody oath I will".
When I'm not on my bike I get my Toyota 86 sports (car) out, but otherwise I only ride my lawnmower.Orange's Roy Riley
"I love it, I've always been mad for it. I bought a new bike 18 months ago and it's already got 20,000 kilometres on it," he said.
"I've been riding since I was 16, although actually I did get pinched when I was 15 riding down to Bathurst come to think of it. It's the only time I've ever been booked riding a bike.
"My wife and I have covered most of Australia on a bike now. When I'm not on my bike I get my Toyota 86 sports (car) out, but otherwise I only ride my lawnmower."

Mr Riley used to ride competitively, on bitumen and dirt tracks, but for many years his love of the bike has been fulfilled through the Ulysses Club, a group for riders over the age of 40 and one of the largest social clubs in Australia.
The Ulysses Club has long had a presence in Orange and branch treasurer Chris Wood said it provides a unique opportunity for motorbike enthusiasts.
"It is quite unique, there's a great social aspect and obviously you get great stories like Roy's," Mr Wood said.
"He's definitely the oldest rider we know of in Orange and even though we're not sure in terms of NSW or Australia, I don't think there could possibly be many more older. I'm 72, so I'm still young."
"Yep, he might be a senior with the club but I still consider him a junior," Mr Riley laughed.
Later this month the club's presence in Orange will develop further as the national committee converges on the city for its annual general meeting.
The meeting was initially scheduled to be held in Western Australia in March but was postponed due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. It was rescheduled Saturday, May 15 and will now be held at the Orange Ex-Services' Club.
"It was moved to Orange because it's relatively central and we'll be turning it into a bit of a weekend," Mr Wood said.
"In conjunction they're also having a dinner, we as the local club will be organising a few rides as well because a lot of members will probably be coming for a few days or even a week leading into it.
"We're also planning a grand parade while the national committee is here, and anyone else who comes as well. We'll hopefully get all the Orange branch members involved as well, and ride along Summer Street."
More information on the national annual general meeting and how to register to attend is available at the Ulysses Club's website.
