Cycling is like: ..............

I'll start.

Cycling is a lot like fooling around.
Everyone likes a little saddle time.

Cycling is like flying in a dream.


Most of my flying sequences in dreams start from a run, skip, or jump - I remain roughly at bicycle height and speed but don't touch the ground.

Bike maintenance is like cooking with Paula Deen
You always wanna make sure everything's got enough grease in it.

Cycling is like eating Paula Deen's cooking
Lots of sweat, panting, and worrying about your heart and knees afterwards.

I'm not sure why I'm ragging on Paula Deen so much today. She was the first thing to pop up in my head.

Cycling is like standing in fire and there is not much air, No wait thats climbing.
Cycling is like chocolate You can't wait to get it, you enjoy it while you have it and when it's gone you want more and remember it was better than it was at the moment.
