The Bicycle Clinic in Killaloe Station, Ontario posted this way cool photo on Facebook, which says a little something about being at home on your bike.
Genius! This setup means no tents, motels or friends' couches required for those across the state or across the country treks. And yes, it might be a bit of a load to pull on the inclines, but just imagine the speed you can get on the downhills.
The 28th annual American Lung Association Trek Across Maine wrapped up Sunday afternoon in Belfast with some 2,100 bikers rolling across the finish line.
Their journey began Friday at Sunday River Ski Resort in Newry before overnight stops in Farmington and Waterville. As of this morning, participants has raised just over $1.5 million to prevent lung disease and improve lung health.
I wasn't at the finish line this year - I rode the event five times but sat this one out - but a friend was there to cheer on the riders and shared her photos so I could share them with you.
Everyone who cycles, has a lot of love for their bike. Even when that bike succumbs to a flat at the worst possible time.
And so, for your Friday, some famous and inspiring words about bikes. And some eye-catching photos, too.

This Melon Slice was spotted in Monument Square last month just waiting for someone to fold it up, put it in the trunk and take it somewhere fun.
It looks a little funky because of its 20-inch wheels and it only has eight gears, but owning one of these little guys means there's no bike rack needed. It fits in a car trunk, a closet, under your desk at the office.
It lists at $429, but doesn't it look fun?
This classic black model is super accessorized with fenders, a bell and a tire pump and sits in the window of Portland Trading Co. on Middle Street.
According to PTC owner Kazeem Lawal, the bike belongs to Portland Velo Cycling Club. It may not be a bike club members would choose to ride, but it sure is nice to look at.
