“As a kid, I had a dream—I wanted to own my own bicycle. When I got the bike, I must have been the happiest boy in Liverpool, maybe the world. I lived for that bike. Most kids left their bike in the backyard at night. Not me. I insisted on taking mine indoors and the first night I even kept it in my bed.” –John Lennon
The bicycle has a place in the annals of history and the hearts of anyone who has ever had the pleasure of riding one. The freedom it exemplifies and the simplistic motion of circles turning circles carries the rider toward countless opportunities throughout a lifetime. For many, a bike may be a form of conveyance or a method of exercise. But for those individuals who truly see the bicycle as mankind’s perfect machine, there is special meaning and attachment that transcends tradition.
