Cycle your way to a longer life

As a person who wants to blow out 100 candles on a birthday cake, I was happy to read the PDQ section of today's Plain Dealer list all the ways to improve the odds for a long life. As a person with a few bikes, I was even happier to see this make the list:
Take up cycling: A report by the British Medical Association concluded that folks who cycled regularly live an average of two years longer than noncyclists.

Lots of other things you might also like (wine, sex, chocolate, pets) were on the list, as well as a few things that are never high on any list (um, castration, anyone?).
