Man on the Red Bike

We were stopped at the intersection.
He was crossing the street on his red bicycle.
Ball cap, sunglasses, gray hair, no shirt, bronzed skin, cotton-gray shorts, black socks, black dress shoes.
The man was tall and broad, but definitely not heavy. 
"How old do you think he is?" I asked John.
"How old is your dad?" he replied.
"In his sixties."
"That sounds right. That look says I stopped caring what people think 10, 15 years ago."
