For The Love of Two Wheels

The bicycle, the bicycle surely, should always be the vehicle of novelists and poets. ~Christopher Morley

I'm in the mood for a bike ride. I NEED a bike ride. I can't be sad, stressed, or annoyed while riding a bike. It's just impossible. It's one of those insta-fixes, the marriage of you pedaling and the wind responding. And it's just dang fun. I hardly see kids riding bikes through neighborhoods anymore. That's all I did as a kid. Maybe it's the neighborhood, or maybe it's video games -- who knows? All I know is I can't wait to soar on mine when I get home today. :) Here are some great bicycle quotes to inspire you to go out and ride!

The bicycle is a curious vehicle. Its passenger is its engine. ~John Howard

The bicycle is the most civilized conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart. ~Iris Murdoch, The Red and the Green

When I see an adult on a bicycle, I do not despair for the future of the human race. ~H.G. Wells

Life is like riding a bicycle - in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving. ~Albert Einstein

While in New York, I came across this fellow. Anyone have a good caption for this one?
