What does biking mean to you?

What does biking mean to me? I can’t escape this question - it’s mostly due to the fact that I got a bicycle tattoo on my back shoulder. It happens every summer: someone will ask what a bike means to me, or why I got the tattoo. My simple answer is: I like to bike.

My deeper answer is: it’s the savior of our relationship! Before we got married, boo and I reached a breaking point in our relationship. He started biking, and soon after bought me a bike as well. We would ride our bicycles every fall night. Since then, every fall, we ride together - our tradition since 2005.

My best memory I have with him was a day it was pouring rain and we rode home from his aunt's house! We got home drenched but also madly in love.

This shared love for riding really brought us closer together! The couple that rides together, stays together.


  1. What a lovely story! Exercise is such a good thing to share with a loved one.

    Kindness is the best accessory,

  2. Thanks, Rebecca! Being into what your boo is into is crucial!

  4. i still don't think you needed to get it tattooed on yourself. A pretty necklace would have done the trick :-) imagine if people tattooed all the things they liked, nombre... lol!

  5. I think I'm gonna get an Ice cream cone tattooed next! You'd like that! ;)
