Biker's Creed ( I Stole This From Someone)

This is My Bike. A Cyclist's Creed

Adapted from the United States Marines Corps Rifleman's Creed

This is my bike. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My bike is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. My bike, without me, is useless. Without my bike, I am useless. I must ride my bike true. I must pedal faster than any competitor who is trying to pass me. I must finish before he finishes. I will....

My bike and myself know that what counts in this race is not the miles we ride, the noise of our gears, nor the speed we create. We know that it is the win that counts. We will win...

My bike is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weakness, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its gears and its frame. I will keep my bike clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will...

Before God I swear this creed. My bike and myself are the defenders of the road. We are the masters of our competitors. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until victory is ours and there is no enemy, but Peace.



***I know, a little over the top there at the end, but I thought it was cool.
