    Since turning 60, Christine Langton has been taken aback by the new group she’s fallen in with.

    Joy Smith (left) and Christine Langton (right) both took up riding motorbikes later in life

    Nope, they got the names wrong, this states above that the 60 year old is on the right! So that means the one on the left must be 80 surely…:)
