Thanks ... Yeah, A-Fib. But I don't take his advice. I intend to live more while I am alive than to live less for longer. I am sure he doesn't want me trying so hard, and I don't take most of the drugs he has prescribed ... but at least I understand my risks.

Well, that sucks. I can see why you would pay so much attention to HR.

I hope that whether you try the ride now or later or never, that you enjoy whatever you do. Be well (as well as possible, i guess.)
