This is a great, inspirational story about Lynn, mitral valve replacement and his bike. Lynn writes…

Hi Adam,

I’m a 69-year old male who had mitral valve replacement and triple bypass surgery on May 28th. I just returned from my 50th high school reunion in Sioux City, Iowa.

 

Bicycle Riding After After Heart Surgery

 

My high school buddy, our wives, and I rode our bicycles from my home in Sheridan, Wyoming to Sioux City for the reunion. The 700-mile biking trip took us 12 days.

I feel great!

Lynn Heeren
