Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

74 Year versus 40 Year old Triathlete - Interesting Read!!!

At 74-years old...these are your legs on triathlon & these are your legs without triathlon

A new study called, "Chronic Exercise Preserves Lean Muscle Mass in Masters Athletes," which you can read HERE graphically illustrates what happens to your muscles (with and without) the type of regular and beneficial exercise that the sport of triathlon provides.
The image below is a cross section of a 40-year-old triathlete's legs and the associated muscle. But the two images below it are the really interesting and telling ones.

74-year-old Sedentary Man

74-year-old Triathlete

As you can tell, the 74-year-old masters triathlete's legs are not unlike that of the 40-year-old triathlete's legs. The study's authors go on to write:
"It is commonly believed that with aging comes an inevitable decline from vitality to frailty. This includes feeling weak and often the loss of independence. These declines may have more to do with lifestyle choices, including sedentary living and poor nutrition, than the absolute potential of musculoskeletal aging.
In this study, we sought to eliminate the confounding variables of sedentary living and muscle disuse, and answer the question of what really happens to our muscles as we age if we are chronically active. This study and those discussed here show that we are capable of preserving both muscle mass and strength with lifelong physical activity."
They conclude by writing:
"The loss of lean muscle mass and the resulting subjective and objective weakness experienced with sedentary aging imposes significant but modifiable personal, societal, and economic burdens. As sports medicine clinicians, we must encourage people to become or remain active at all ages. This study, and those reviewed here, document the possibility to maintain muscle mass and strength across the ages via simple lifestyle changes."

"A pro mountain biker seeks epic singletrack in the dense urban jungle near downtown Los Angeles.

Accessible by over 9.8 million people on a daily basis, the Santa Monica mountain range extends through the heart of Los Angeles County -- twisting through the stars' backyards in the Hollywood Hills to the edge of the Pacific Ocean.

Can prime mountain bike terrain really exist amongst the concrete, gridlock traffic and congestion?

Watch the video above (
