No Illusions Here!

We all have people in our lives--friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, spouses, co-workers and others--who simply cannot understand why we ride our bikes instead of driving (or taking a train or plane!) to some place or another.

They have probably called us worse than this:

We, however, know why we ride.  That's why, if they looked at us closely, they would find none of the signs of mental disorder.  Instead, they are more likely to see this:


  1. People always say "oh, you must ride for your health". Then they look at me kinda strange when I tell them I would still ride if it were as bad as smoking three packs a day.

  2. Phillip--I've never said that to anybody, but it reflects my sentiment exactly!
