Why I Like to Go Bicycling

  • You meet interesting people (see picture to the right!)
  • You get motion
  • You get fresh air
  • You do not pollute the surroundings

I have always liked this picture. It was used in a campaign ('The Swedish Bicycle Helmet Initiative') for bicycle helmets in Sweden many years ago. (I added the black box, as the picture was violating the content guidelines.)

The text of the picture is in Swedish. A translation into English would be something like this:

The Naked Truth
As a cyclist you belong to the naked, unprotected group in the traffic. You don't have a metal shield or a safety belt to protect you. The most important thing you've got to protect is what you have inside your helmet.

Update: I participated in the Pirkka Cycling (Pirkan pyöräily) on 3. June. This was the first time and I really enjoyed cycling the 134 km Fitness Tour. I started at 9.21 and finished 8h25min later. Next year? Don't know yet, but if I go, my goal is 8h15min. :-)
