This past week, newspapers reported published data from Mayo Clinic Proceedings of an extensive study in Denmark that found that people who were active in tennis, bicycling, swimming, and others lived longer than those who were sedentary. Those active in tennis and bicycling topped the list. However, those who enjoyed contact and participation with others in these activities lived longer than those in cycling, swimming, and others by themselves. Social interaction appears to have positive effect.

By extension, it is possible that riding with SOBs whose members constantly engage with each other in rides and social activities may life forever! Talk to the SOB rider next to you on the ride, knowing that foreverness is your reward.
