A bike is the best means of transport for almost everyone, so, it is not strange that the greatest historical celebrities consider the bicycle as something else than a simple way of travelling.
“If you worried about falling off the bike, you’d never get on”, Lance Armstrong –professional cyclist-.
A tip which can help us during many moments of our life and, in addition, it is really illustrative: the person who gives us the advice has spent a half of his life on a bicycle surpassing challenges and almost every one of us, at a certain time, have taken the risk of riding a bicycle in our lives.
If in case of doubt we feel scared, the best thing we can do is remember the day we launched ourselves down the street on two wheels.
“Those who wish to control their own lives and move beyond the existence as mere clients and consumers, those people ride a bike”, Wolfgang Sachs – researcher, writer and teacher of environment, development and globalization.
If someone, who has dedicated his career and his life to theorize a more sustainable development, has said that, maybe it is true that the bicycle transforms us and make us freer from the consumption system in which we live.
Only the people who pedal to work daily can feel the sensation of well-being with the environment and with oneself, a sensation that is accentuated when you see what you save on petrol and the gym.
“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”, Ernest Hemingway –journalist, writer and traveller-.
The contours and all the cities’ corners of the country. From BornBike we confirm this fact every day of our work. With the bicycle you will live an experience which is impossible to appreciate through another kind of vehicle.
And in order to keep up the level, here you have the last famous quotation which, we think, doesn’t need an explanation:
“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving”, Albert Einstein –the most acknowledged scientist of the 20th century-.
