Saw that in the over-50 forum, and sent it on to Facebook. Very good video!

Thanks for the video link. I shared it with my friends on Facebook -- although I admit mostly for selfish reasons. I'm trying to get at least a few of them to dust off their bikes and come out on a bike ride with me. Several of my old high school friends have joined me in the ranks of Athenahood and I've spent years quietly proselytizing about the joys and triumphs of bike riding or even a nice light hike.

based on the physical i had late last year when my wife decided to up the life insurance, i am a fit fat man. my bmi was awful and should have indicated the end is nigh, but literally every other measurement from bloodwork, cholesterol, blood pressure, etc indicated that i was healthier than average. bmi was the only red flag. i am more active now (esp after biking again) and would bet my numbers have improved, even if my bmi still stinks. considering how much i drive for work and now that i am riding, i probably am more likely to be taken out by a car than a heart attack--at least it will make a better story than being killed by a cheeseburger

That's not the confirmation I want! That's all about leading a healthy life of moderation...

Where's the video that justifies my idea of spending all my money on a bikes and just riding rather than boring stuff like washing dishes and mowing the lawn?
