Man who says cycling saved his life encourages others to get around by bike

Man who says cycling saved his life encourages others to get around by bike

Day in and day out, Harry Baulisch hits the open road on his bicycle.

"I've adopted the bike lifestyle, because that's what keeps me alive," said Baulisch.

He is a heart attack survivor and has diabetes. He credits his time on his bike for saving his life.

"I get that exhilarating feeling with the wind in my face," said Baulisch.

The American College of Sports Medicine just released its annual fitness index.

This time, it's broken down by city.

The study shows Omaha ranks 33 on a list of 100 cities.

All are ranked for topics including health behaviors, chronic diseases and walk and bike friendly roads.

"I think a way Omaha can move up the list of as far as fitness friendly cities [is by] encouraging active transportation," said Sarah Johnson of Mode Shift Omaha.

That's exactly what Baulisch says he hopes to do.

"If you want to live the good life, get on a bike and join us," said Baulisch.
