At present I am gathering information on some recreational rides which may be of interest to my readers. In the interim I have listed here a few metaphors on cycling which you may enjoy.

* A bicycle is a metaphor for life.
* Life's journey is a bicycle ride, "Consider a man riding a bicycle. Whoever he is, we can say three   things about him.
          > We know he got on the bicycle and started to move.
          > We know that at some point he will stop and get off.
          > Most important of all, we know that if at any point between the beginning and end of  his journey he stops moving and does not get off his bicycle, he will fall off it.  That is the metaphor for the journey through life of any living thing and I think of any society of living things..........William Golding

* 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..........Iris Murdoch

* Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving..........Albert Einstein

*Few articles ever used by man have created so great a revolution in social conditions, as the bicycle..........US Census Report, 1900

* The most vital element for the development of our cities is that the bicycle is an instrument of experiential understanding.

* Life's journey is a bicycle ride downhill.


On the lighter side........A nerd was walking down the sidewalk one day when his friend, another nerd, rode up on an incredible shiny new bicycle.

The first nerd was stunned by his friend's sweet ride and asked, "wow! where did you get such a nice bike?"

The second nerd replied, "Well, yesterday I was walking home, minding my own business, when a beautiful woman rode up to me on this bike. She threw the bike to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want! "

The second nerd nodded approvingly, "Good Choice. The clothes probably wouldn't have fit."

Cheers and safe riding
