Bicycle Haiku(18 posts)

Bicycle HaikuLazy
Jun 19, 2001 3:20 PM
Once upon a time there was a web site that had a bicycle haiku section. I think it was http://www.truesport.com but I'm not sure. In any event, I can't find it there now. Does anyone know where they are? They were really funny.
sorry i can't find it for you, but here are a few of my own!Haiku d'état

I am at my job.
I am not out on my bike.
What a crappy day!

Work will be done soon.
I'll wear my stinky jersey
to dodge driving nuts.

Fathers on bike path
D'oh! 600 freds to dodge

NYC is HOT
Windbreakers and arm warmers?
What were they thinking?

Doug rides really far
I don't ride as far as Doug
I am laziest.

I love it! Later.

Obviously, my haiku was dedicated to the likes of our recent flame baiters. I still hop on my mtb occasionally. Come to think of it, I might give it a try tomorrow morning. It has been a while. Enjoy the ride.

she blew on past me
before I could see her face
so now I am bummed

chase me down the road
i'll make you ride really hard
think you can catch me?

sparkles on the road
are best to be avoided
so that you don't flat

my legs feel like lead
my lungs keep gasping for air
i've got to hang on

forever searching
for that lost moment in time
I keep on riding
