“The bicycle, the bicycle surely, should always be the vehicle of novelists and poets… as [the poet] passes from windy hill-top to green creeks and grazings sometimes the bicycle sets him free.  He sees it all afresh; nothing, nothing has ever been written yet:  the entire white paper of the world is clean forhis special portrait of all hunger, all joy, and all vexation.”

~Christopher Morley, The Romany Stain (1926)                                                             as quoted in Deep Play by Diane Ackerman
