When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. -Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Think of bicycles as rideable art that can just about save the world. -Grant Peterson

The bicycle is the most efficient machine ever created: Converting calories into gas, a bicycle gets the equivalent of three thousand miles per gallon. -Bill Strickland

Ride lots. -Eddy Merckx

well it looks a bit like one, but no, it's in fact from India, it's an Avon, who were once (I'm told) an English company from Sheffield, they ultimately, the Brit factory closed, but in 1952 the Indian one got a start up independently and is still in the same Indian company's hands and is one of the worlds largest manufacturers of bicycles by number and range...
Its an AB Classic, I got it from the Classic Bicycle Shop in St Kilda, I ride it often, its a single speed (48/16) with lever brakes and a huge saddle, very comfy and it can scoot along as long as I am up to it!... I will bring it to the Ride of Silence on Saturday in my wish to show embrace diversity and inclusion on the day. R
