Hey, diddle diddle
The bicycle riddle.
The strangest part of the deal –
Just keep your accounts
And add the amounts .
The sundries cost more than the wheel.
Anonymous Poem, 1896
I found this great old riddle while reading Just Ride by Grant Petersen, who was in Fairhope last weekend for a book signing and to participate in the “Good Life Ride to Lulu’s.” It goes great with a Pintrest link I saw on Twitter this week too that illustrates a number of nice, cycle chic, accessories. (See here.) I even ordered one of the great PoCampo panniers, pictured . Now I’m off to my local bike shop to pick up another “goodie” for my daughter’s bicycle.
“…a bicycle with no accessories
is not as good as it can be.”
– Grant Petersen, Just Ride
