|Does anyone know where this quote from EH is from? Thanks
It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.

|... I cut and pasted the quote into Google and did a quick search... netting a few hits but nothing definitive... Still, if you spent more time perusing... you just might find it.
Be the bike.

|It's either from The Sun Also Rises or "A Way You'll Never Be" - I think the latter is probably more likely.|

|and I'm not finding it in either. But I haven't finished my coffee yet, either. ;) Which essay in By-line? I could've sworn I remembered reading it in Moveable Feast, but it's been a while...|
