Old man, look at my bike, it’s a lot like yours was.

An old man on a bicycle told me the hills would hurt,

but going down would be delightful.

He told me the rain would sting,

but would make the sunny days brighter.

An old man on a bicycle told me to learn from the ride,

because its lessons would parallel life’s experiences.

He told told me to ride fast and take chances,

or I would never experience thrill.

An old man on a bicycle told me I’d feel depleted,

but would later feast with great satisfaction.

He told me to welcome adversity,

because it teaches us the bond of duality.

An old man on a bicycle told me,

“ride bikes, drink beer, and go fuck yourself.”

I like that old man.

  1. “He told me the rain would sting,
    but would make the sunny days brighter.”

    I suspect I’ll find myself repeating this sentiment ad nauseum from now until the end of Juneuary. Mud season sucks.

  2. I guess if I wrote crap like this, I’d depend on stealing photos off of other sites too.

  3. WTF not even a photo credit. c’mon dude.. at least act like you’re playing by the rules.. it ain’t that hard.

  4. Ms. Babble— jest a pine cone’s toss south o’ there— Seattle.

    I wanna come ride VanBC again, love that place.

  5. sloppy,

    Apologies for not citing the photo. I found it on a tumblr page, which had been re-blogged some 800 times. The link source did not take me to the rapha site, but another tumblr page. I visited the rapha site, and they cite the photo to Steven Nereo on a blog called Single Ape. So with that said, I’ll make you an offer, if you take a chill pill, I’ll add the citation. Deal? K.

    Yours truly, Cupcake

  6. I hope I live to his age to ride. I also hope I’m not senile enuf to wear that fucking outfit.

    Thanks Cup. I’m now officially blind.

  7. cupcake – Don’t do me any favors, I was just pointing out that your content was unoriginal. You’re welcome.
