I started this discussion on my previous post – I just had to keep sharing these good words and the delight I find in them:

Bicycle In The Clouds

Bicycle In The Clouds

“ You know you’re in Copenhagen when a mother in high heels and mini skirt, with a 5 year old on the back and two bags of groceries dangling from the handlebars, blows past you like you’re carved in stone.”    ~Unknown author

“When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments.  Here was a machine of precision and balance for the convenience of man.  And (unlike subsequent inventions for man’s convenience) the more he used it, the fitter his body became.  Here, for once, was a product of man’s brain that was entirely beneficial to those who used it, and of no harm or irritation to others.  Progress should have stopped when man invented the bicycle.”    ~Elizabeth West from Hovel in the Hills

“Nothing compares to the simple pleasures of a bike ride.”      ~JFK

“Get a bicycle. You will not regret it if your live.”  ~Mark Twain

“Let me tell you what I think of bicycling.  I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world.  It gives a woman a feeling of freedom & self-reliance.  I stand & rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel…the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood.” ~ Women’s Suffragist at a movement rally in London

“When I see an adult on a bicycle, I do not despair for the future of the human race.”  ~H.G. Wells

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

“Newspapers are unable, seemingly to discriminate between a bicycle accident & the collapse of civilization.”  ~George Bernard Shaw

I so enjoyed my bicycle ride through Napa Valley this year and my visit to the Charles Schultz Museum.

Hope you find time for a bike ride soon!
