The lowest mine has been was 123 and the highest 166 (it is probably somewhere in the middle at the moment). My arteries are clear. I drink a glass of red wine every night after dinner. I also eat a low-salt diet and almost no red meat, very little dairy or eggs. I stay active and ride as much as I can with my busy schedule. Over the winter, the bike is on the trainer in my den and I am on it almost every day.
