Bikes rule OK!

On account of National poetry day, I just wrote this:

I ride my bike all over town
Cos it feels good, not for some eco-crown
Bridges at night are definitely the best
Lights of the city not put to rest
Bumper to bumper, 2 wheels needn’t care
Weaving between them, we cyclists dare
To race the traffic, we nearly always win
See you later drivers, you’ll see us grin
Brompton, Pashley, single speed, fixed
We’re in this together, undeniably mixed
Day-glo, in heels, courier kit or city suit
Anything goes for the daily commute
Feeling left out, then join our gang
Saddle up safely and come down to hang
With our critical mass, it’s fun to play
Come rain or shine, bikes rule ok!

I ride my bike all over town

Cos it feels good, not for some eco-crown.

Bridges at night are definitely the best

Lights of the city not put to rest.

Bumper to bumper, 2 wheels needn’t care

Weaving between them, we cyclists dare

To race the traffic, we nearly always win

See you later drivers, you’ll see us grin.

Brompton, Pashley, single speed, fixed

We’re in this together, undeniably mixed.

Day-glo, in heels, courier kit or city suit

Anything goes for the daily commute.

Feeling left out, then join our gang

Saddle up safely and come down to hang

With our critical mass, it’s fun to play

Come rain or shine, bikes rule ok!
