My cycling brother from another mother and all-around good buddy, Mike, will often, out of nowhere, exclaim on a bike ride, “I love my bike”.

Most would mistakenly think this means he simply loves his bike – I clearly love mine – but that’s only part of what he means by that fantastically complex statement.

We were out on our first 50-mile ride of the year (my buddy, Chuck and I put in some bonus miles for a crisp 100k), about eight or nine deep in a pace-line, sprinting for City Limits signs, just enjoying that we were outside, and Mike, with a smile stretched all the way across his face, blurts out, “I love my bike.”

What it really means is, I love life on my bike, riding with friends, having the time of our lives.

Good times and noodle salad, my friends.

I love my bike.

  1. For sure! And “I love the freedom and fitness and friendship that riding my bike brings into my life each time I throw a leg over the top tube!” is much harder to should when sprinting for a town sign… 😉

    I love my bike.
