I still have people tell me, "Be careful out there, it's a zoo," or "I'd be afraid somebody on their cell phone would kill me." Now I have a perfect comeback. "According to my cardiologist, I'd be dead now if it wasn't for all the cycling I'd been doing before my heart attack. I've lived more than two years longer, and counting, because I'm out on the bike with the traffic than if I'd let my fears keep me in the car. If I get run over on the way home, I've still had that extra time."

Not that I'm recommending anyone else have a heart attack!
