Bikes > Pills 'Nuff said

A new study offers perhaps the most definitive reason yet why society should be doing more to encourage cycling, and serves as another reminder that the health benefits of cycling far outweigh the risks.

Tru...great read!
I started commuting to work when I was stationed in the D.C. Area. Dropped over 50lbs, went from 6 prescriptions to 2. Now that I am retired, still ride several times a week and took up tennis as an alternative way to get exercise.
