My father used to always give me a basketball, a skate board, and a bike every Christmas. That's all I wanted every year.
I was riding my mountain bike in Colorado, and I met a dog who reminded me so much of my very first dog in the way she interacted with me, looked at me, and wagged her tail that I rode away convinced I'd just very possibly met the reincarnated version of my long lost friend.
I run on the beach, surf, and bike.
Riding a bicycle is the summit of human endeavour — an almost neutral environmental effect coupled with the ability to travel substantial distances without disturbing anybody. The bike is the perfect marriage of technology and human energy.
People see me now and ask if I'm still running. I may look like I am, but I'm really not. People think I still run every day but I ran for 25 years and I deserve to not do anything but walk or ride the bike with my kids.
I have a road bike and a mountain bike, and I tend to use them both a lot. They help you keep your balance and your stamina.
I race to win. If I am on the bike or in a car it will always be the same.
The most important thing is to have a good relationship with the bike... you have to understand what she wants. I think of a motorcycle as a woman, and I know that sounds silly, but it's true.
Bike — quotes and aphorisms
To be a great motorbike racer, the most important thing is passion for the bike.
Riding a race bike is an art — a thing that you do because you feel something inside.
Maybe the bike is more dangerous, but the passion for the car for me is second to the bike.
I am thankful the most important key in history was invented. It's not the key to your house, your car, your boat, your safety deposit box, your bike lock or your private community. It's the key to order, sanity, and peace of mind. The key is 'Delete.'
