    Best Biking Quotes

    Talking to one of my buddies at work and he reminded me that I once told him "The most expensive bike in the work is still cheaper than the cheapest by-pass surgery in the world." when he was crying over the price of his first bike (Navigator 100). He's now in shape, riding an Ultegra equipped Madone and knocking off about 3K/year on-road.

    So here's the question, what's your best cycling quote?

    It never gets easier, you just get faster.
    How can anyone who's been riding as long as I have, be so slow???

    "The bicycle, mans noblest invention."


    my personal one, at the top of a long climb and being lectured by a guy I passed on how to shift, climbing technique, sitting down, standing up, mashing the pedals, etc.

    me: "look at my derailleurs"

    guy: "oh a singlespeed, never mind"

    That's a good reminder to us all not to succumb to the promise of a free lunch.

    I was riding last fall when a guy on a recumbent pulled up on the trail and said
    "You're going to have to get one of these sooner than later!"

    "Really?" I ask, "Why's that?" He tells me "Well because you'll eventually get a bad back and sooner or later you'll want to save energy and ride more efficiently."

    "Well" I replied, "I broke my back in three places in 1981, have a half-collapsed disc and a fused disc but I still like riding wheelies so I think I'll wait until I need a three-wheeler and a fat-ass seat."

    He must not like three-wheelers, cause he doesn't talk to me anymore.
