"If you can finish a race, there is no reason you cant win it" ~scott fader. He is a guy at my lbs who races cat 2 and used to race cat 1. I dont think it was intended to be like a quote but it is very inspirational.

There's no quotes of the episode, but I always find it amusing that Albert Hoffman had the first "trip" (accidental) on a bicycle.

Here lies the body of Edward Grey,
Who died defending his right of way
He was right, dead right, as he pedalled along
But he's just as dead as if he'd been wrong

"I've got a bike. You can ride it if you like.
It's got a basket, a bell that rings and
Things to make it look good.

I'd give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it."
