QUOTES

Life is like a ten speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use.
—Charles M. Schulz
Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike.  
—John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 35th President of the United States
The bicycle is the noblest invention of mankind. 
—William Saroyan, Nobel Prize Winner
…. the bicycle boom is not a fad. It comes at (or is symptomatic of) a time when traffic jams are intolerable to commuters, heart disease kills too many sedentary executives, the population grows ever more pollution-aware and ecology-minded, and millions of people are looking to the simple pleasures of life. 
—Steve Sherman, Bike Hiking, 1974
We can tie this country together with threads of green that everywhere grant us access to the natural world. 
—President Reagan’s Commission on American Outdoors, Americans and the Outdoors, 1987
Greenways can draw people together in their communities to provide open spaces for all close to their own homes. They have the potential to be this country's most important land-based effort for conservation and recreation in the next several decades. They can draw private and local entities into lead roles in provision of recreation opportunities. They can capitalize on the entrepreneurial spirit of Americans and give pride of accomplishment and responsibility to millions of people in every community. They can protect vital water, fish, wildlife, and recreation resources as integral parts of the growth of cities and communities. And, if greenways truly capture the imagination and boldness of the American spirit, they could eventually form the corridors that connect open spaces, parks, forests, and deserts— and Americans— from sea to shining sea. 
—President Reagan’s Commission on American Outdoors, Americans and the Outdoors, 1986
