    Ride a century when you turn a century

Wallack and Bill Katovsky in Bike for Life, a blueprint for using cycling to achieve longevity, fitness, and overall well-being. Bike for Life’s cutting-edge, science-based plan can slow and even reverse the age-related deterioration which begins in most people around age 35, leaving you functionally younger and more vital. Using cross-training, interval training, periodization, smart eating, and breakthough exercises designed to spur natural growth hormone production, Bike for Life can help you protect and rebuild age-battered muscles and bones, restore a tall, youthful posture, heat up a stagnant love life, and even ride faster, stronger, and longer than you could last year. It won’t be easy, but for those who plan on rolling into triple digits on a bike, not a wheelchair, the payoff is beyond measure: The endless joy of riding a bike across town, or across the country.
