Renowned bike funnist Reverend Phil recently found his beloved “Duff#5″ (full story here) and was moved to write this touching ode:
She has returned to me.
Let it ring from the depths of the Shanghai Tunnels to the heights of Council Crest.
Let it ring from every bridge, from the Freemont “bikelane” to the Hawthorne gravel path.
Let it ring from cherubic babes in Burleys to pink ‘n black minxes on minis.
Let it ring for those stuck in traffic yearning to escape, and those flowing though traffic as escape.
Let it ring and ring true in the pounding chest of every being for whom the independence of self-mobilization is exhilaration incarnate.
Duff#5 is come
Glory be to wisdom, for wisdom guides when I listen to my friends.
Glory be to vigilance, for vigilance is a burning reminder.
Glory be to hope, for hope I had lost, though others did not.
Glory be to community, for community takes care of itself.
