"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving" ~ Albert Einstein

"The bicycle is a curious vehicle. Its passenger is its engine." ~John Howard

"When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments. Here was a machine of precision and balance for the convenience of man. And (unlike subsequent inventions for man's convenience) the more he used it, the fitter his body became. Here, for once, was a product of man's brain that was entirely beneficial to those who used it, and of no harm or irritation to others. Progress should have stopped when man invented the bicycle." ~ Elizabeth West - British Choreographer

"It never gets easier, you just go faster." ~ Greg LeMond.

"Life is like a ten speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use." ~ Charles M. Schulz - author, cartoonist

"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle." ~ Ernest Hemingway - author

"The journey of life is like a man riding a bicycle. We know he got on the bicycle and started to move. We know that at some point he will stop and get off. We know that if he stops moving and does not get off he will fall off." ~ William G. Golding - English Novelist and Poet. Nobel Prize in Literature, 1983

"Whenever I see an adult on a bicycle, I have hope for the human race." ~ H.G. Wells - author

"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 - author
