How to Use Your Bicycle for Prostate Cancer Prevention
The American Cancer Society estimates that a full one third of all cancers stem from poor nutritional practices and lack of exercise.
Almost all of us learned to ride a bicycle when we were young, and that bicycle can be a great tool for changing your lifestyle, reducing your prostate cancer risk, and having some fun adventures – all at the same time.
Pictured below are my riding partners, Scott Peterson, Steve Kurtz, and Phil Bond. If you look closely, you can see two generations of our Prostate Cancer Awareness Project cycling jersey. We have a new “climbers jersey” designed and we’ll be adding a distance jersey for people who live where there is only land.
There are a wide range of bicycle rides that you participate in. To find one, just Google “century” or “Gran Fondo” and your state and you’ll find a ton.
