    I nearly died in summer 2012 from a serious blood clot in my lungs (a pulmonary embolism caused by a DVT*** in my left thigh, from which a clot broke away).

    5 years on and I am back to doing long, hilly rides. My lungs are a lot better, probably back to about 75-80% of where they should be. When pushing myself hard I run out of breath quicker than I would like, but it certainly beats being dead! :okay:

    *** DVT = Deep Vein Thrombosis.
