    4-month report

    I bought my bike in January. The "before" results were in November of 2004. The "after" results are from late April:

    Weight: before - 265 after - 255
    Cholesterol: before - 272 after - 168
    Triglycerides: before - 417 after - 157

    This has been done without any drug therapy, with no change in diet, and while doing something I really enjoy!

    My doctor is amazed. I'm happy and considering buying a more comfortable bike for longer rides.

    If four months of bicycling can make this large a change, what will a year or a number of years do?

    Wow! -- very good, keep up the good work. Just wish we could have everyone ride a bike and make the US a healthier place. I'm sure with those results it's a good motivator to keep going.

    Hey, that's an absolutely amazing reading on the cholesterol and the triglycerides!

    I'm about to have the same blood test done. We'll see if there is any difference in mine.

    Those results of yours, FarHorizon, are among the best and most dramatic advertisements for exercise (and cycling) that you could find. Start posting them everywhere -- as a cross-post in Training and Nutrition, for a start (and I am not one for cross-posting).
