A nice saying about cycling

Coincidentally, being at my local bike shop I noticed a beer coaster (no beer though ;-). With a nice saying: "Happiness is a good bike and a good pair of legs."

What I like about cycling is that you really don't need all the bells and whistles / money to have fun. Cycling is for all to enjoy.

KISS: Keep It Simple and ride with a Smile

That's true but elitists would disagree

Totally unnecessary. We really don’t need to go there over and over. If that was an attempt to be funny, it fell flat.

OP. What wonderful words. Thanks for sharing.

Whistles are verboten where I live, but I agree with the general sentiment.

I moved my cycle computers down onto the 30 degree angled stems of my bikes, so that I could wrap the touring bars all the way to the stem clamp. The purpose was to have every possible riding position the bar offers.

The accidental benefit is that I basically never see the cycle computer while Iím riding, only when Iím done or at a stopping point! 👍
