Riding a bike is cheap and easy thrills
Nearly everyone wants to have super-human powers. The ability to escape the limitations of our bodies. Limitations that dictate how we can move and what we can do. Bikes make us super human.
In an instant, a bicycle lets us go faster than we could ever image on foot. All with a couple of tubes and two hoops. Pick up a bike and you are on a free carnival ride, going wherever you want, which ever way you want. Instant thrills!

And bikes do it with no noise, no gas purchases, no lining up, no noise. You just go.
Sure, who wouldn’t want to fly but, so far at least, that takes lots of technology and usually involves engines and a pile of infrastructure.
Bikes are instant fast freedom.
And if you don’t get this, just look at any kid on a bike. Especially the first time.

Tell us why you ride. We would love to include it.
