here are a few more reasons i am grateful for bikes -
bicycle mechanics helped the inventors of the airplane which made travel really fast and brought my husband to me across the ocean. (how's that for a jump?)
mr. mcfeely would look silly on a horse.
bikes can be hooked up to power all kinds of things. i did that in school and just powering a light bulb takes some serious leg muscles.
bike inspired motorcycles and i love those.
and just as an irony -oprah started my gratitude thing -i am grateful for bikes today - lance armstrong is a bike racer - he admitted to doping for his races to - - - -oprah! that's just a bizarre realization i made while typing. i am easily amused.
have a great and grateful day!
just for fun -
