As i was heading hills this morning i was riding past belmont racecourse, the start of the bike hike on sunday, and the remnants of the days riding in the guise of those little frame stickers with everyones grade "a through to d" and number "0000 to some high number" were everywhere. Anyhow, it inspired a little bikehike haiku in the early morning sunrise:

" A1083,
D4385,
stickers litter the bikepath."

ah so :p

number of freedom"

It should also have some reference to the season...

I dreamed one up a while ago, on the first ride of my Audax bike:

"Cycle made by hand.
Heat from torch infused in steel.
Springtime wanderings."

It's corny, I know.

Regards,

Suzy

Not the freeway bike hike, but it is the freeway:

Ride by the freeway
Bumper to bumper traffic
A Schadenfreude

Brilliant!

And they say the Simpsons aren't educational. Homer is the master of Schadenfreude, as ashamedly pointed out by Lisa.

Very good, Duncan.

This thread suggests some very deep questions -
Does cycling lend itself to the rhythm of the haiku?
Or does the intellectual dimension of cycling parallel that of the haiku?

Or perhaps just one very simple question -
Why aren't we working instead of composing Japanese poetry at our desks?

Can not make haiku
from Haiku Happy Hippy
without seasoning

And why is it that haikus have been brought up on 3 of the froups I
frequent, in a single day?

That's the advantage that sport has over art.
If you win a race then generally it's clear cut. Everyone can see who
the winner is and there's no argument.
In art, and/or poetry, anybody can say that's dumb or corny, and it's
difficult to prove that it's not. Critics have an easy time in art. In
sport the results speak for themselves. Give me sport any day.

Sport? Sure.. we can do that.. how about some...
Rythmic gymnastics?
Synchronized swimming?
Dressage?
Flatland BMX?

I understand what you mean though. I like the idea of jumping 'this'
high or riding 'this' fast rather than some 'expert' voting for the
Russian dude because they went to school together..
