John, you will be pouring on the miles now that they have fixed you up! Your a machine!!! Glad to hear you are doing well!

Sounds really great, John! Yesterday I passed 450 miles for the year-to-date, turned a 7-mile errand into a 19-mile loop to do extra errands. (Wednesday's ride would have been cancelled for weather.)

I have put 570 miles on my bike since my quadruple bypass. Tuesday I rode 27 miles at 18 mph by myself. I feel great. I am on a new diet, Dr. Esselstyn's . My total cholesterol is 98. I take 40mg of a statin. They are going to drop me to 20mg.

Thanks for the encouragement. I just got the route and I will try to ride it next week. I am looking forward to the ride!

Frank, I agree with Joe. If you ride any amount regularly you will be able to bring your A-game on ride day. It just happens between the excitement and atmosphere. I would go for it if I were you!

Hey Frank - coaches and trainers always say you have more in you than you think. More willpower, more stamina, more strength. Make this a bigger season and go for the metric century!

I am getting ready for the May 10, Tour de Cure. It is still a little early in the season for a metric century, so I am considering wimping out and doing the 1/2 metric century. We only have those two options here. The route is a steep one with +2000 ft of climbing. I will earn my first Red Rider Jersey. I have a very diabetic family (Me - Type 1, My sisters - Type 1 (deceased due to diabetes, riding in her memory) and Type 1.5, both of my aunts (both type 2) and my grandmother (type 2). Look up you favorite rider on the Tour De Cure site and sponsor them!
