I now only have good days and great days.
Lance Armstrong
Cancer survivor and seven times winner of the Tour de France.

The reason Armstrong has become the world's most indomitable cyclist and America's greatest athlete is two-pronged: He has both the physiology and the passion for his chosen vocation. Still, what truly distances Lance from the (pack) isn't just the pleasure he gleans from being on his bike. All the lads love cycling - and certainly the celebrity it buys them. What they don't share is his love for suffering . . . The more Lance hurts (and) the more wasted he becomes, the happier he is.
Rob Fernas

Ride your bike, ride your bike, ride your bike
Fausto Coppi
When a reporter asked him what it takes to become such a great champion.

When Lance first turned professional, it was like trying to put a hand brake on a raging bull.
Paul Sherwen
TDF commetator on Lance Armstrong.

Armstrong out of the saddle all of the time now, dancing on his pedals, keeping his perpetual cadence going that DESTROYS the bike riders around the world.
Phil Liggett
TDF commetator on Lance Armstrong.

It was eleven more than necessary.
Jacques Anquetil
After winning a race by twelve seconds.

What makes a great endurance athlete is the ability to absorb potenial embarrassment, and to suffer without complaint. I was discovering that if it was a matter of gritting my teeth, not caring how it looked, and outlasting everybody else, I won. It didn't seem to matter what sport it was--in a straight-ahead, long-distant race, I could beat anybody. If it was a suffer-fest, I was good at it.
Lance Armstrong
My Journey back to Life.

But to say that the race is the metaphor for the life is to miss the point. The race is everything. It obliterates whatever isn't racing. Life is the metaphor for the race.
Donald Antrim

I thought of that while riding my bike.
Albert Einstein
On the Theory of Relativity.

When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.
Arthur Conan Doyle

I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle; I want to ride my bicycle; I want to ride my bike; I want to ride my bicycle; I want to ride it where I like...; I don't believe in Peter Pan, Frankenstein or Superman; All I wanna do is bicycle, bicycle, bicycle...
Freddie Mercury
Queen 1978.

A bicycle ride is a flight from sadness.
James E. Starrs
The Literary Cyclist.

For all their fearlessness, sprinters are a delicate breed. At the peak of form they effuse an aura of invincibility, suggesting no bicycle rider ever pedaled as fast. To win, sprinters must have everything: physical condition, confidence, luck, aggression and committed team support. An elusive combination, attainable but not sustainable.
David Walsh
Inside the Tour de France.

You have to sprint on feeling, not thinking. You must have faith in yourself but you cannot think about it too much.
Jean Paul Van Poppel

Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self—reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel...the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood.
Susan B. Anthony

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.
Emo Philips

At that age, it's one of the worse things in the world to wake up and not see your bike where you left it.
50 Cent
The hip-hop star on the theft of his childhood bike.

Eat before you are hungry.
Drink before you are thirsty.
Rest before you are tired.
Cover up before you are cold.
Peel off before you are hot.
Don't drink or smoke on tour.
Never ride just to prove yourself.
Paul de Vivie, aka Velocio

It never gets easier, you just go faster.
Greg LeMond

Perhaps the single most important element in mastering the techniques and tactics of racing is experience. But once you have the fundamentals, acquiring the experience is a matter of time.
Greg LeMond

Pain is a big fat creature riding on your back. The farther you pedal, the heavier he feels. The harder you push, the tighter he squeezes your chest. The steeper the climb, the deeper he digs his jagged, sharp claws into your muscles.
Scott Martin

The bicycle is just as good company as most husbands and, when it gets old and shabby, a woman can dispose of it and get a new one without shocking the entire community.
Ann Strong
Minneapolis Tribune, 1895.

To be a cyclist is to be a student of pain....at cycling's core lies pain, hard and bitter as the pit inside a juicy peach. It doesn't matter if you're sprinting for an Olympic medal, a town sign, a trailhead, or the rest stop with the homemade brownies. If you never confront pain, you're missing the essence of the sport. Without pain, there's no adversity. Without adversity, no challenge. Without challenge, no improvement. No improvement, no sense of accomplishment and no deep-down joy. Might as well be playing Tiddly-Winks.
Scott Martin

There was a second supremely sweet moment of victory. As I made my way through the finish area, I passed the Cofidis team. Assorted members of the organization stood around, the men who I felt had left me for dead in a hospital room. "That was for you," I said as I moved past them.
Lance Armstrong
After winning the opening time trial and becoming the leader of 1999 Tour de France.

I won! I won! I don't have to go to school anymore.
Eddy Merckx
After winning his first bike race.

Cycling is like a church - many attend, but few understand.
Jim Burlant

I'm gonna show you a hill that would choke a mule.
President George W. Bush
On his mountain bike, moments before losing his front-wheel traction and flying over his bars down a steep dropoff.

Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever.
Lance Armstrong

If you worried about falling off the bike, you'd never get on.
Lance Armstrong

I have always struggled to achieve excellence. One thing that cycling has taught me is that if you can achieve something without a struggle it's not going to be satisfying.
Greg LeMond
