Here is my camping bike deep in the Cascades, taking a little break at the Big Tire Junction. I ride my bike because it is always an adventure.
I ride because as long as I’m on my bike it won’t suffer the same fate as this one.
Mountain Biking, road biking, commuting, touring, geared, single speed, fast & slow.
I ride for physical and mental well-being.
I ride to relieve stress and clear my head.
I ride to push the limits of my body.
I ride to see new country.
I ride to experience weather and the seasons.
I ride to spend quality time with my family and socialize with friends.
I ride to limit my impact on the environment.
I ride because I can.
The bicycle is the most overlooked technological invention ever created by man. A lot of the problems in this world could be solved if more people rode bikes.
What is that? Who lives there? What do they do? I ride to find answers and sometimes new questions. I ride to share space and time with other people. I ride for the adventure.
—Maria K. Falbo
I ride because it forces me to slow down and ponder the beauty that surrounds us.
I ride because when the President is in town, and traffic is at a standstill, I can still get home in a reasonable amount of time!
(also: because it’s cheaper than a car, it’s a more convenient way to get to work, and it’s always fun to be on a bike.)
Why I ride? – Dr. Seuss said it best:
“Oh, the Places You’ll Go! . . .
You’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So . . . get on your way!”
