Philosophical Bicycles.

I have recently completed the annual collection of new bike catalogues for the up and coming new year and there seems to be a bit of an underlying theme of making bicycles an intellectual tool and something to muse about.
Hey, not only are they green and you will personally save the planet, but riding a bike will make you a better person and probably a more intelligent, kinder and noble a person too.

Only today i read, and I quote: "When i see an adult on a bicycle, i do not despair for the future of the human race."
H.G.Wells.

Yeah, like what he said.


I'm thinking of having a weekly poetry corner, for verse and ideological thinking!

"Handing over a bank note is enough to make a bicycle belong to me,
but my entire life is needed to realize this possession."
-J. Sartre

I love a bit of Sartre, me.
