Mike and his wife own Bloomfield Bicycle shop. When electric-assisted bicycles came on the market, Mike realized that people like him would benefit from a boost. Some bike stores carry two or three electric-assisted bikes as a novelty, but Bloomfield Bicycle went heavily into electric bikes.

Still, with long hours and 75 years in his rear view mirrors, Mike was gaining weight, had diabetes and high blood pressure. His doctor read him the riot act. So, three months ago Mike made a commitment to riding his bike at least 20 miles a day. He has dropped 45 pounds
in the last three months and has tossed out half of his pills. Bravo, Mike!
