Gary Klein
“Biking is about rhythm and flow. It's the wind in you face and the challenge of hammering up along hill. It's the reward at the top and the thrill of a high-speed descent. Biking lets you come alive in both body and spirit. After awhile the bike disappears beneath you and you feel as if you're suspended in midair. ”

Meik Wiking, The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living

This little piggy biked for sun,
This little piggy used windmills,
This little piggy used sun,
And this little piggy squealed
'Re-re-recycle!'
All the way home.”

“It was always scary, Charlie replied, but that was why you did it, right? If it was safe... it wouldn’t be fun.”

Joe Hill
“She had felt good for a few moments, racing across the face of the hill on her old bike, but the happy feeling had burned itself out and left behind a thin, cold rage. She was no longer entirely sure who she was angry with though. Her anger didn't have a fixed point. It was a soft whir of emotion to match the soft whir of the spokes.”
Joe Hill
