How many more times is a morbidly obese sedentary cyclist likely to die
from cardiovascular diseases as compared to a fit, healthy motorist with a
normal BMI?

How can someone be both a cyclist and sedentary?

How can they not be?

"Sedentary lifestyle is a medical term used to denote a type of
lifestyle with no or irregular physical activity. A person who lives a
sedentary lifestyle may colloquially be known as a couch potato. It is
commonly found in both the developed and developing world. Sedentary
activities include sitting, reading, watching television and computer
use for much of the day with little or no vigorous physical exercise.
A sedentary lifestyle can contribute to many preventable causes of
death."

Doesn't sound like typical cyclist to me.
