قالوا في الدراجة / “Quotes “Keep Biking


It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.

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

What do you call a cyclist who doesn’t wear a helmet? An organ donor. David Perry

The bicycle is the vehicle of a new mentality. It quietly challenges a system of values which condones dependency, waste, inequality of mobility, and daily carnage. . . There is every reason why cycling should be helped to enjoy another Golden Age.” James McGurn, Worldwatch Institute

Cycling satisfies so many needs. If you’re in a gregarious mood, you can go out with a group. OR you can go alone- solo. If you’re in an aggressive mood, you can go fast, or if you’re tired and want to unwind you can go slow. A bicycle doesn’t discriminate in age, either. Georgena Terry

Bicycles are social catalysts that attract a superior category of people. Chip Brown, “A Bike and a Prayer

Just as the ideal of classic Greek culture was the most perfect harmony of mind and body, so a human and a bicycle are the perfect synthesis of body and machine. Richard Ballantine

Whoever invented the bicycle deserves the thanks of humanity. Lord Charles Beresford Miscellaneous

Those who wish to control their own lives and move beyond existence as mere clients and consumers- those people ride a bike.

Wolfgang Sachs, For the Love of the Automobile

Bicycle riding as little as three miles a day will improve your sex life. Dr. Franco Antonini

Let our people travel light and free on their bicycles. Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire

Cyclists are open-minded. Cyclists are egalitarian. Cyclists share a fellowship of the wheel that can overcome all political, social, racial and economic barriers. Except for recumbent. Ted Costantino, cycling journalist

Government must help to eliminate cars so that bicycles can help to eliminate government. Advocacy slogan in Holland

Bicycling is a big part of the future. It has to be. There is something wrong with a society that drives a car to work out in a gym. Bill Nye, scientist and producer of public TV science programs

The bicycle enables us to escape many other machines: We use it for transportation, sport, recreation, and make it a way of life.

Jobst Brandt, famous wheel builder, and author of The Bicycle Wheel

One of my favorite things about biking (vs driving): When I used to drive, I always drove with my doors locked. I would play my stereo, and mostly avoid any contact with other drivers on the road (just stayed in my gas-guzzling box.) But now, I ride my bike and oddly enough, I’m less afraid of all those things. And when I am at a stoplight and another cyclist is also there, I usually know their name by the time the light turns green! It’s like all these walls come down and although it seems more dangerous than being in a car, I am less afraid! Joni Mehler, 1995

It would not be at all strange if history came to the conclusion that the perfection of the bicycle was the greatest incident of the nineteenth century. Author Unknown

he bicycle is the most efficient machine ever created: Converting calories into gas, a bicycle gets the equivalent of three thousand miles per gallon. Bill Strickland, The Quotable Cyclist

Messengers and mountain bikers share a common chromosome. James Bethea

The sound of a car door opening in front of you is similar to the sound of a gun being cocked. Amy Webster

  1. great post.. I want to go back to Lebanon, but I feel that what is keeping me in London these days is my bike. Not only is it difficult to ride in Lebanon because of the lousy roads, traffic, and disrespectful drivers, you also get the “tilttish” tripling when they see a woman on her bike.

    1. تحياتي منزا،
      100%. الدراجة بتشدك للمكان. لتصيري جزء من حركته، وإيقاعه. وهيدا الحكي ما كتير رح يقدر يعرفو اللي ما بسوق دراجة.

      وبخصوص التلطيش، اليوم، رحنا من بيروت ع الرميلة، ع الدراجات. وصراحة، ما حدا زمط من التلطيش والتنكيت. خصوصاً انو كل الناس ع الطريق سألونا إذا نحن استونيين😀

      خلينا نشوفك هون!

      سلام
