The means and the end.

As for slang, I've always been partial to "endo." I love the way it's three words, "end over end" condensed into one word and a letter, to make another word. So clever, and it really rolls nicely off the tongue. And it's always so lovely when someone endos; we usually get a great big laugh or at least a nice adrenaline rush. And I think us mountain bikers have given it a better meaning (more appropriate, at the very least) than those BMXers, who use the term to describe what we very well know is a nose wheelie. (also a good one.)

Uh...

Joy & Passion

2nd part: the phrase "Bike Porn" :D

3rd part*: I believe that even on the simplest bike ride,
so much happens: We feel things, see things, think things,
and say things that we otherwise might not.
It all adds up to something more powerful, and
more ineffable, than a few sentences can express.

you have to do something while above ground might as well be fun.
