The bicycle has been around for more than 100 years and features heavily in the childhood recollections of many in the Western world. For many of us, it will be our first vehicle and as such can come to represent freedom and personal independence, making it an excellent object for inspirational sayings.

Life is Like Riding a Bicycle

This saying in full reads: "Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving." It is usually attributed to Albert Einstein, who won the Nobel Prize in 1921 for his "services to theoretical physics." Many similar sayings exist, which are attributed to other famous persons.

An Exercise Bicycle For The Mind

This quote by the best-selling British author Terry Pratchett describes fantasy, relating to the idea of fiction in general rather than simply one genre of storytelling, as the means of developing the mind. The full saying reads: "Fantasy is an exercise bicycle for the mind. It might not take you anywhere but it tones up the muscles that can."

Mastery of the Bicycle

Prominent American suffragist Frances Willard, in her book "A Wheel Within a Wheel: How I Learned to Ride the Bicycle" (1895) wrote: "She who succeeds in gaining the mastery of the bicycle will gain the mastery of life." The phrase demonstrates the idea that things that are hard at first cannot only be overcome but, as the "it's like riding a bike" phrase demonstrates, will stick with you once you master them.
