“Life is like a ten speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use.” —Charles M. Schulz

Round the bipedal ring
A slotted loop of links
Clacks tandem wheels in sync
Reels the scenery screen

It is the unknown around the corner that turns my wheels.

—Heinz Stucke

Flickering images
A fork tuning the sound
Ceiling unlimited
Wheeling the world around

You either love spinning the pedals and watching scenery whiz by, or you don’t. And if you love it, not much can sour you on the idea of riding your bike.

—Keith Mills

Wheeling slowly evokes
A glimmering of night
A whispering of spokes
The ghosts you almost sight

Fantasy is an exercise bicycle for the mind. It might not take you anywhere, but it tones up the muscles that can. Of course, I could be wrong.

—Terry Pratchett

A saddle to straddle
The wings of Pegasus
 Landing on the shadows
Tandem wheels bipeds bless

The bicycle is the noblest invention of mankind.

—William Saroyan
