Bike’s Lessons

Tags : 

Many people know how to ride a bicycle, and they are taught at a very young age. People ride bikes for pleasure, exercise, or transportation. They are economical, long lasting, and low maintenance. You can ride it, carry it, or stow it on the back of your car. The cost of entry is typically low, but elegance or high performance costs more.

The lessons about bikes are many and not just brought to life by their value, appeal, or popularity. When we ride a bike we learn about efficiency, energy, and momentum. We learn about rest, maintenance, and safety. We learn about judgment, respect, and sharing.

We learn that stopping and starting is harder than staying at a study pace. We learn that there are different ways to get to the same destination, and the fastest way may not be the most economical or the most enjoyable. We learn that if we don’t know when to stop we may get out of control. We learn that balance requires movement and that sitting still for too long will cause you to fall. We learn that you can coast downhill, but if you’re looking to go up, you have to use more energy and pedal harder.

Did you ever think you could learn so much from a bike?
