My tongue was so firmly in my cheek at that remark, it was cracking my teeth.

I fail to see how people can conclude that cycling on roads is good for your health.
Forcing yourself to breathe deeply whilst travelling through a fog of diesel fumes, splashing through pools of filthy runoff water and roadside waste, inches from fast moving vehicles, many of whom have legitimate reason to be on the roads, it's not like they're out there as a hobby to piss off the mamils (middle aged men in lycra) all the while putting up to 50% of your body weight on yer gooch. I think time will tell regarding the health "benefits" of roadside cycling.
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against cycling as such, to work, school, mountainbiking, or even as anyone's sole mode of transport. In fact, those who ditch the automobile for the bicycle as their daily mode of transport should rightly be applauded.
What does irk me is the brigade of fly swallowing morons who drive to a carpark with their bikes on show on some daft rack behind their executive cockwomblemobile, which adds to the pollution they are about to head off into, usually taking up the whole lane at half the speed of the traffic flow. Paying no road tax yet adversely affecting more road users than any other.
I rarely meet cyclists on the scenic, undulating, quiet side roads yet find myself stuck behind hoards of sweaty men gleefully riding 5 or 6 abreast, strung out on the main thoroughfares. I fail to see the sense in it.

Ah! but the cyclists rely on the cars and trucks to keep the blacktop clean and smooth for them, but I presume in the eyes of the Lycra clad lot, we should be doing that through the hours of darkness.
