Sisters' dowries[edit]

I've removed the line "He bought his first bicycle with money handed down from his sisters' dowries.[1]".

A dowry is money that a woman pays her husband's family. So is brothers may have had dowries to hand down but the sisters would't. 66.55.209.223 (talk) 20:29, 12 June 2010 (UTC)les woodland

Death[edit]

this section could flow better. it starts oddly enough by mentioning the age at which he gives up cycling, and then goes on to mention a bypass operation and dying of a heart attack. after reading this section one is left with the impression that he didn't live much past 40. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 199.125.85.33 (talk) 20:18, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
