go for a ride

Would you like to burn about 5,000 calories a day…for about a month?

The 184 guys who started this year’s Tour de France are doing that.

17 years ago today, I survived triple bypass heart surgery… caught my problem while bike riding and training to ride along the tour and burn some calories too. So I didn’t “ride along” in 2004, but did the following year. (yes, lots of recovery and training) 

The lesson:  don’t take any day for granted…go for a ride and feel the wind in your face.  (and maybe burn some calories)

And thanks to the cardiac team at LVHN for keeping the air in my tires all those years ago.
