You said it. Bugger.

Funny, informative, passionate, he was a fine man.

So sad.

But what is going on? Cycling is supposed to keep you fit and healthy
yet he was only 63 and suffered a heart attack

A 65 year old friend who cycles 60 miles a day and is built like a
greyhound has just had a triple bypass.

Perhaps Gough Whitlam was right when he said, "I get enough exercise
attending the funerals of all those who do."

I guess I am at the age when you read the obitary column and realise
they are all your comtemporaries.

As you say, "bugger"

He'll be sorely missed. I'm saddened to hear the news.

I seem to remember that he had developed MS. Not sure of the connection
to a heart attack.


But certainly concur with "bugger", his web pages were amongst the most
useful that I have come across, not to mention his April 1 spoofs.

I had heard that Sheldon had been off the bike for some time due to some
sort of nerve disease. He had been unable to move around easily for some
time I believe.

If there was a knighthood for services to cycling Sheldon would
certainly be Sir Sheldon.

Thanks Sheldon for your time spent with us.

Exercise is just one parameter of long life. Gene and luck also have a
major contribution in that equation.

In any case, SheldonB did not have good health as he suffered from MS
for quite a while.

A inspirational bloke, always had the time and patience to share his
vast knowledge and expertise. The cycling community has lost a great
personality.

We'll charge a glass or two tonight in his honour.
