Cycling Quote of the Day

In a new semi-regular feature, we’ll be bringing you quotes pertaining to the greatest invention in the world… The Bicycle. This first one is from novelist Elizabeth West in her book Hovel in the Hills.

“When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments.  Here was a machine of precision and balance for the convenience of man.  And (unlike subsequent inventions for man’s convenience) the more he used it, the fitter his body became.

Here, for once, was a product of man’s brain that was entirely beneficial to those who used it, and of no harm or irritation to others.  Progress should have stopped when man invented the bicycle.”

But progress didn’t stop…! Because man went even further and invented the Bigfish Folding Bike. The very act of living today means people have less space, time and money, and Bigfish is a bike that was specifically designed to overcome all these problems. It rides great, folds compact and small, looks great, and comes at a great price.
