    Biking improves your entire life!

    Awesome news!
    "Cycling reduces the risk of heart disease by 18%, lowers cancer incidence by 45%, and improves blood pressure and sleep."

    Cyclists who ride an hour a day, have an 18% lower risk of all-cause mortality than non-cyclists. For those who ride an hour and a half or more, the benefit increases to 28%, according to a 2000 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

    Cyclists have a 45% reduction in all cancer incidence as compared to non-cyclists, according to a 2012 study in the European Journal of Cardiovascular Prevention. Cycling also lowers the risk of colon cancer by 41% in men and 44% in women.

    Cyclists have a 18% lower incidence of cardiovascular disease as compared to non-cyclists, according to a 2011 study in the European Journal of Cardiovascular Prevention.

    High Health IQ men had 57% lower mortality than low Health IQ men and for women the difference was 56%.

    I'm gonna be immortal!

    Nope, it's at the perfect elevation to sit and spin for 6 hours uphill.
    It also has an old-school $10 dropper.

    To be "more round" we have to assume that it was round to begin with.
    It's like this; we couldn't of had rocky 2 without the original rocky.... right

    PS, I like round butts (on the ladies). not talkin Badonkadonk.....but ya know, plus sizes are in right now

    Depends on where the gas originates.

    It says he hit 45mph on it, while showing him riding down a hill.

    Puts less strain on your back - what about your stomach?

    He's never fallen off of it - as he wobbles down the road.

    I wonder why it never shows him climbing a hill?

    It is an interesting contrast to the "A different approach to mtb…" in the 50+ forum as it seems to be the polar opposite.

    Biking has improved my life so much that I want to quit my job!

    Sitting behind a desk all day in front of a computer, dealing with BS of epic proportions is really bad for mental and physical health.

    It was kind of cold to commute this morning, but, then I thought of this thread, and also thought that biking will save me from a work-related heart attack, as well as cancer. So, I commuted in.

    I found the whole family a tad too creepy. I'm not saying that Marie was banging her brother or anything, just that if I'd found out that she was it would not have been major surprise.

    Other Osmond-approved words:

    Golly
    Jeepers
    Crikey

    I do think that any of the Osmonds ever said "Crikey".

    "Golly" and Jeepers", for sure though.
