'The bicycle has a soul. If you succeed to love it, it will give you emotions that you will never forget.'
'I never want to abandon my bike. I see my grandfather, now in his seventies and riding around everywhere. To me that is beautiful. And the bike must always remain a part of my life.'
'The bicycle is the most civilised conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart.'
'When I go biking I am mentally far, far away from civilisation. The world is breaking someone else's heart.'
'The bicycle had, and still has, a humane, almost classical moderation in the kind of pleasure it offers. It is the kind of machine that a Hellenistic Greek might have invented and ridden. It does no violence to our normal reactions: it does not pretend to free us from our normal environment.'
'When the spirits are low. When the day appears dark. When work becomes monotonous. When hope seems hardly worth having. Just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.'
arthur conan doyle
'Melancholy is incompatible with bicycling'

'Get a bicycle. You will not regret it, if you live'

part of the reason the poems are on here is because i like them, the other is that i feel more people should be out buying poetry, going to poetry gigs and generally supporting the cause of poetry and writing generally. if poetry is getting read...it isn't getting read! should anyone be feeling precious about that remember it counts for me too. however if you think that the presence of your poetry on the site infringes your personal creativity please accept my apologies, let me know and i'll remove it immediately.
