I am not a Bicyclist

Diptych by Frances Schlabowske

I am not a Bicyclist,
but the Bicycle is my avocation.

I was raised Catholic,
but I have faith in two wheels.

I am a deer hunter,
but the Bicycle is my recreation.

I do not wear Lycra,
but the Bicycle is my transportation.

In every neighborhood in Milwaukee, any town in Wisconsin and every corner of the Globe; I always find myself surrounded by fellow travelers with the same belief that two wheels, a chain, and momentum tempered with balance can lead us to salvation.

  1. My bike was born before 1995
    but my bike expects me everyday
    My bike is made of steel colored red
    but my bike likes my 6’4″ & 210
    My bike can fly at 39 mph down hills
    but my bike aptly climbs at 9.5 to get there
    My bike isn’t run by Dura-Ace
    but my bike gets us where we want to go
