Get going on January 1 with North Texas’ ‘Happy New Rear’ bike ride
By Leslie Barker healthblog.dallasnews.com
How can I resist telling you about something that comes from a man whose email signature line is this: “Come ride. Come play. Do some good along the way”?
That man is Mike Keel, who wrote to invite me to a New Year’s Day bike ride he and his wife have hosted since 1990. I’m kind of a bike-riding wimp, although I quite admire people who have a passion for this.

The event, known as the Merry Fitness/Happy New Rear Ride (and…
