Bikes are life

A bike is not just a piece of metal.
A bike is not just a tool.
A bike is not just transportation.
A bike is adventure.
A bike is memories.
A bike is hope.
A bike is dreams.
A bike is a time machine.
A bike is a way to meet old friends for the first time.

A bike is a metaphore for life, you can put all the power into it you want but if you are not planted firmly on the ground you just spin your wheels.  Point it in any direction and you can go places.  You can steer it any direction you wish, it's your choice how rough of a road you want to travel, it is your choice how far you want to travel.  You only get out of a bike what you put into it.  Sometimes the ride is delayed with a flat, sometimes it ends early with a crash.  Bikes are about the journey, not the destination.

It doesn't matter if it is to the end of your driveway or around the world, just go ride.
