Jack London

“Ever bike? Now that’s something that makes life worth living! I take exercise every afternoon that way. O- to just grip your handlebars and lay down to it (lie doesn’t hit it at all), and go ripping and tearing through the streets and road, over railroad tracks and bridges, threading crowds, avoiding collisions, at twenty miles or more an hour, and wondering all the time when you’re going to smash up. Well now, that’s something! And then go home again after three hours of it, into the tub, rub down well, then into a soft shirt and down to the dinner table, with the evening paper and a cigarette in prospect – and then to think that tomorrow I can do it all over again!” – Jack London, in The Letters of Jack London
