Riding the bike for two decades, yet not liking cycling

©Barry Sandland/TIMB – Not every person on a bike actually likes the ride…

“I have been riding my bike for about 20 years in the city. I ride every day, except Sundays. But I never ride in the forest or anything like that. I do not really like riding a bike. I do it for the mobility.”


Notes: How could I let this iconic look slip by without turning around for a chat. He glided along, so effortlessly, it was a surprise when he told me he actually did not like riding a bike. Such an opposition to his sense of ease on two wheels. But nobody said you have to love bicycles to ride a bike every day. There are loads of people who hate the daily car drive, but still must do it.
