I didn't read this article because I didn't bother to read any of the articles in the latest free, unsolicited Bicycling! Just visually scanned the issue to see if it was the same trash as a couple of years ago - it's even worse. I wouldn't place any credence whatsoever in anything that appears in Bicycling! Indeed, the fact it appears in this publication is powerful evidence that it is BS. Really sad, as back in the 60's and early 70's this an excellent magazine.
> We do bone densities in our department. I cannot think of any logical reason why bicyclists should have any problems with low bone mass. I'm a radiologist, not a physiologist so there might be reasons that I'm not aware of. Still, of all the patients we do that have low bone mass, women are far and away the majority and I cannot remember ever doing bone density on any 'healthy' athlete, or any active, reasonably healthy male. Men just don't have a problem with that as a rule. I certainly would NOT lose any sleep over this, folks!
> Look at it this way...it would only be a problem if you fall off!!!! (joke)
> Another benefit...you would be lighter if you had lkower bone mass!!! (another joke)
