    ;) Freaks of the VC Label

    All in good fun:

    We're freaks of the VC label,
    We ride when ere we're able,
    We do highways but not bikeways
    With legstrokes impeccable.
    We ride well here in bikealot,
    We diss FREDS and JAMS and bicyclists a lot.
    We're freaks of the VC label,
    Our calves are formidable, But many times, we expose doctrine
    Thats not quite understandable.

    We're quite mad in bikealot,
    We ride on the highwaya looooooot.
    In traffic we're tough and able,
    yet not quite personable,
    Between our rides we rage against lines,
    And presume to be knowledgeable.
    It's a busy life in bikealot,
    We have to peddle the bull a lot.

    VC Haiku

    I ride as VC
    Bicycle is vehicle
    I am the driver

    Bike path or bike lane
    I can ride any of them
    But I love the street

    Some pretty bike paths
    Are especially lovely
    When I'm in the mood

    Cool mornings, hot days
    Exposed to the elements
    Full experience

    A recumbent bike
    Or MTB, or road bike
    I ride all of them

    I go anywhere
    I'm free on my bicycle
    Wave at the gas pumps

    Grab a snack, refresh
    Douse my throat with icy cold
    I'm a new man, now

    Don't stare at me, man
    You're the one inside a box
    I'm one with outdoors

    Home again, arrive
    Trip's over, then tomorrow
    Comes another day

    Chilling in the house
    Dreaming of another ride
    How can they miss it?

    My life is my own
    Thankful for the invention
    Of the bike, my friend

    Freedom is worth all
    Simplicity is the key
    Unfettered, I ride
    No worries

    Awesome!

    I have to go to work now, but I'll see if I can whip up a limerick...

    A silly concept, this VC
    Peddled, pushed, and preached onto me
    They say I'll die
    With my style of ride
    In BS they tout a degree
    Shameless plug (my sites):
    Photography
    Vanity

    "Hey!" he cried,
    a lean angle of indignance
    attached to twin circles
    at a stoplight
    "Hey, don't tell me where to ride,
    I shall be the one making
    that decision"

    He huffed at the driver with burly arms
    hanging out of hot, rolled-down windows
    cigarette hanging from crusty lip

    the quiet traction of thin tires on sun-softened asphalt
    all to be heard
    the slim silhouette of rider against the mellow orange of setting sun
    all to be seen
    I am a mutated sig Virus. Please put me in your sig so that I can continue to replicate and mutate, blah!.

    Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.

    (Yeah, we've got 8 bikes and 3 trailers instead of livingroom furniture. What of it?)
