For the love of bikes

9 Jan

I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it where I like

~ Queen

Today’s blog is a tribute to one of my favorite things–the bicycle.  If this was an episode of Oprah and it was one of Oprah’s favorite things, everyone in the audience would receive a free bicycle.

Sorry, I am no Oprah–on so many levels!

(I hear Oprah is going to be interviewing Lance Armstrong soon. Maybe you’ll get a free bike out of that some how.)

Instead of giving you an actual bicycle, I am sharing some favorite quotes about bicycles, along with images I have captured along the way.

I hope these will entertain you enough that you forget about that free bike that you’re not going to be receiving.

Bikes of Paris

Cycle tracks will abound in Utopia. –H.G. Wells

 

Paris is a beautiful city. One of the things I found most beautiful about it, were the bicycles. Bikes are everywhere in Paris. I like photographing bikes anyway, but since I was a tourist in Paris with my camera at the ready, I found lots of photogenic bicycles while I was there.

 

 

Some of the bikes of Paris were amazingly colorful!

Bicycles are everywhere in Paris–Here’s one parked beside The Seine:

Bicycles are on every Rue and Boulevard in the City of Lights.

Bikes in Paris come in all shapes and styles:

Bicycles are part of the scenery of Paris, day and night.

Happy Cycling!
