When my husband and I were both younger…we loved to get on our bicycles and cruise around the neighborhood during the weekends. Then our lives got busy and we quit riding our bikes for many years. Well, that is all about to change and starting this year…we are getting on our bikes again for some much needed relaxation and exercise!
A few days ago I was looking around on the internet for some bike riding inspiration and came across several sites that featured some great quotes. I picked 12 of our favorites, printed them out and have them “tacked” on our memo board in the family room.
Here are the 12 bike riding quotes that we selected for inspiration.
