For a Love of Bikes and Books

with 2 comments


“There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we spent with a favorite book.”

–Marcel Proust

I would add that many of those magic childhood days were also spent on a bicycle. Books help us explore the world, and bicycles do too. Reading a book is a solitary activity, and while cycling is often done with friends, for me there is a pull to those rides when it is just you, the pedals, the road and your imagination. Your mind can wander to new places, see new things. Just like reading. No wonder those childhood days, full of freedom and exploration were so magical.



I came across these bike book ends from Design Atelier Article on Etsy, the perfect combination of a love of bikes and books.


Read a book. Ride a bike. Life doesn’t get much simpler than that.
