Velo City

A Zen teacher once asked his five students why they rode their bicycles. The first one said he rode to carry potatoes. The second cycled to observe the world. The third said it cleared his mind, and the fourth said cycling put him in harmony with all sentient beings. The Zen master was pleased with all their answers, but when the fifth replied, “I ride my bicycle to ride my bicycle,” the teacher sat at the student’s feet and said, “I am your student.”

  1. So so cool. I love it!
