“You will not regret it, if you live”

Ten thoughts on cycling from Austin Kleon on the occasion of his one year cycling anniversary. Including these two gems:

Better to ride up a hill than to ride into the wind. You’ll overtake the hill eventually, but you can’t overtake the wind. 

Riding a bicycle is a beautiful paradox — it requires you to become one with the machine while also making you feel more human.

Kleon also shares a great quote from Mark Twain: “Get a bicycle. You will not regret it, if you live.” It might even increase your quality of life.
