My Name is Robert Warren Hess and I’m a Prostate Cancer Survivor
I became a prostate cancer survivor on December 10, 2002, the day after my birthday and just two months before my older sister was to pass away from pancreatic cancer.
I spent a career in the US Army and we’re all about planning and never giving up. The American Cancer Society says that 30% of our cancer risk is related to diet and exercise. So, I cleaned up my diet and got on my bicycle. Since May of 2003, I have ridden over 29,000 miles – and won two state championships.
As you might imagine, I follow cycling in my spare time – the Tour de France, Giro d’Italie, etc.
This morning I read an article in BikeRadar about life-long cyclists, and I think I’m one. In fact, I think most of the 25 signs apply to me. Including eating great food in out-of-the-way cafes.
Should You Become a Cyclist for Life?
Would you like to lose a bit of weight and improve your emotional feeling? Hang out with fun people? Swallow a bug doing 25 mph? [This isn’t mandatory!] Cycling’s a great way to do it all. You can find a local bike shop with a cycling club where ever you live.
Take a quick read of 25 signs you may be a life long cyclist and see if you would like to join the movement!
