Can you imagine
The thrill of riding your bike,
You make it go for you are the engine
No slow spoke, speed is of the essence !

The bicycle is meant to go fast
And you are the rider to obey it's command,
One word is you will never be last,
The geeks in this life will never understand !

The bicycle is king of the road, not the car
No gas needed, human power is the answer.
This lightweight Trek bike will take you far,
The elite cyclist , in all kinds of weather !

The rustle of the air, sound of the wind
A glint of the sun, a touch of the rain.
A master cyclist will always have a grin
Realizing, no pain, no gain !

Listen you armchair travelers of the world
You are missing out on life's good find,
Your body thrives in the bike battle
Pumping your pedals, always clears your mind !

When you are old and gray
Will you have cycling memories like me ?
Or did you do nothing but only play
Pity, the beauty of the bike, will give your life plenty !

Many gears to climb the highest hill,
Neat saddle and drop handlebars,
The lightweight wheels will give you a thrill,
In night time riding, you will see the beautiful stars !

No excuse, get biking,
Husband and wife, together as one,
Both enter with a mood of excitement to their liking
Their moments are clear, their fear is gone !

The world is mine, when you turn the pedal !
