People said, 'Build this [Eliza Furnace] Trail and no one will come' …Now commuters use it every day and families come on weekends to blade and bike and walk.
—Tom Murphy, Mayor of Pittsburgh, PA
Ever bike? Now that's something that makes life worth living!...Oh, to just grip your handlebars and lay down to it, and go ripping and tearing through streets and road, over railroad tracks and bridges, threading crowds, avoiding collisions, at twenty miles or more an hour, and wondering all the time when you're going to smash up. Well, now, that's something! And then go home again after three hours of it...and then to think that tomorrow I can do it all over again!
—Jack London, Author
Bicycling is a big part of the future. It has to be. There's something wrong with a society that drives a car to workout in a gym.
—Bill Nye, The Science Guy
Think of bicycles as rideable art that can just about save the world.
If I can bicycle, I bicycle.
Three important things in life -- freedom, ambition, health. And that is why I ride a bike.
—Harish DN, India
