Colorado Cyclists, One Tough Bunch

It is no secret to anyone who knows me that I have been doing a lot of cycling lately in preparation for this year's Triple Bypass. Last week, I was descending fast down a winding road when I crossed just behind a coyote.

With that in mind, I came across this article in this morning's paper. To sum it up:

A Boulder Cyclist, also training for the Triple Bypass, hits a 500 pound bear while going 45 miles an hour.

He breaks his ribs, and bends his bike, so he straightens it out and rides to the hospital.

It all reminds me of this classic illustration.
