Bike riding provides so many great metaphors for life:
focusing our energy on power (the back wheel) or direction (the front wheel);
things you don’t forget how to do;
when you crash, get back on and go;
standing out in the crowd (by riding the coolest bike);
and making things our own (remember putting playing cards on the wheels?).
I was watching some kids riding their new bikes early this morning. All day I’ve had fleeting memories of great lessons I’ve learned on a bike.
What has riding a bike (even a motoriZeD one) taught you about life?
