One logical way to divest from fossil fuels is to ride our bikes more! And with our kids, because they are so happy on a bike, trike, trailer, whatever. Biking -- Freedom.

lyrics

VERSE 1
I like to ride my bike around the block
I got a real cool bike
and I like to ride it all the way around the block
it's brave and shiny and it's got two wheels for the road
it carries me so easily
I know it can handle quite an awesome load

CHORUS
well I sit, I sit on the seat
I get a handle on the handlebars
I peddle, peddle with my feet
and I steer, steer with my arms
and I ring, ring the bell
and it's swell

VERSE 2
I like to ride my bike around the town
I got a real cool bike
and I like to ride it all the way around the town
it's got a basket up front where I put all the treasures I find
I ride it all by myself with no help
I pedal real hard to make it fly

CHORUS
well I sit, I sit on the seat
I get a handle on the handlebars
I peddle, peddle with my feet
and I steer, steer with my arms
and I ring, ring the bell
and it's swell

BRIDGE
to be ridin’
feels like flyin’
ba da da da da da da da da

VERSE 3
I'd like to ride my bike
around the world
I got a real cool bike
and I'd like to ride it
all the way around the world
I’ll invite all my friends
to join my bicycle parade
we’ll spread peace and love
and laughter and kindness
and free lemonade


“I thought of that
while riding my bicycle.”
~ Albert Einstein
on the Theory of Relativity

“As a kid I had a dream:
I wanted to own my own bicycle.
When I got the bike
I must have been the
happiest boy in Liverpool,
maybe the world.
I lived for that bike.
Most kids left their bike
in the backyard at night.
Not me.
I insisted on taking mine
indoors and the first night
I even kept it in my bed.”
~ John Lennon

“Think of bicycles
as rideable art
that can just about
save the world.”
~ Grant Petersen
