This blog introduces you to my special brand of BIKE. I show you how to find your Best self, access your Inner strength, tune in to your Killer instincts, and use your Expressive voice. It's inspiring, spiritual, quirky, and it's all in your head. It's about ATTITUDE, not exercise, though that might be a side benefit.

Best #baiku ever!

Riding for hours
on this seat without padding
makes my big bum numb.

More #baiku

I can't help myself. For now, I'm inspired to write in verse on the blog. So that's what I'll do until I get my motivation back. Here's another #baiku, hopefully, for your reading pleasure:
Rides can serve you well
When life offers challenges
You will learn to see
During the times when you feel the least motivated, what do you do to get your mojo back?

Benefits of riding a bike -- in verse

For whatever reason, my thoughts have been hijacked by short snippets of verse in haiku form. Bicycle enthusiasts call this style of poetry #baiku. I wrote three of them last week, and here are three more that I posted on Twitter. This time, I post them with titles. I think of them as healing words:

Bike trail begins
thin line embedded in dirt
can't wait for downhill.

Uphill I go...slow
sometimes I have to walk up
but I never quit. 

When bike takes you there
to paradise and then back
your life will be changed.

Inspired by poetry, 3 baiku poems

I think of my bike / its two thick sturdy tires / pushing me through mud.

I live for the bike / her images around me / also the real thing.

Inspired by Trek / she pushed me past obstacles / and showed me my strength.
