Cycling is often described as meditative and inspirational and has been known to induce moments of absolute clarity. Even Albert Einstein was reported to have had visions of genius whilst riding his bike. There is just something about putting two wheels in motion that really triggers the thought process.
On the flip-side, cycling seems to invite our brain to dish out a large proportion of utterly bonkers and random thought matter. We asked the good people of Twitter to share their most random thoughts had whilst riding, and here are 10 of the best…
“Is there still a chance I could make it as a professional cyclist?”
What if by some strange twist of fate, you were talented spotted and awarded a place on the most exclusive, high end, fast track training programme? Would you be the first pro-athlete that made it at 32yrs of age? How awesome.
“Imagine if my bike was a horse”
By this point your imagination has well and truly bolted out of the stable door – normally provoked by a particularly boring stretch of road on which you mentally transform your bike into a noble steed, morph yourself into your favourite literary heroine and canter towards your destiny.
