Take A Hike To Ride A Bike!

The cat has sure heard this a time or ten. You humans spout it off at every den. "Just like riding a bike." That saying you sure seem to like. But do you think farther on it? Nope. What is that thinking shit?

Just like riding a bike.
You spout it when needed.
From adult to tyke,
In brains it is deeded.

The words, not the action.
For that's all you say.
Don't want to end up in traction,
So you don't go and replay.

Learning the bike.
That you must do.
Won't get a Farcebook like,
Or read about any how to.

You get on and try.
Crash. Boom. Bang.
You surely don't fly.
There may come a clang.

But try you do.
And try some more.
Then two by two,
You may start to soar.

Hmm went to birds.
Tabbies may have a fit.
They fly in herds.
Watch out for their shit.

Back to the bike.
Once learned it stays.
So that saying you like,
For one particular maze.

The doing you forget.
You chuck it aside.
You avoid any bet.
A bike you can ride.

So it should apply.
Apply to one and all.
The saying never does deny.
Follow the bouncing ball.

Let's read and pretend to know.
Be the best you can be.
Doing is such a hard go.
But it's like riding a bike for you and me.

Think further on it now? Did the cat ring a bell somehow? You didn't read how to ride and pretend to know. You got up and kept giving it a go. You learned through doing. Now to doing most go a shooing. But that saying is still given many a go. At least you can give off that flow. Hmm should I ask if you can ride one first? If you can't, that whole saying kinda does burst. I'll give that saying a pass, which is easy, because it is just like riding a bike, whoops, for my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  7. Been a long time since I rode a bike, but I"m confident I could restart with a wobble and then roll along. Same with ice skates - I could balance and swish along slowly. Muscle memory is amazing. Nice rhyme today

    1. Muscle memory sure can return
      With skates, stopping is one thing I'd still need to learn

  17. I don't think I've ever heard any action described by comparing it to riding a bicycle, except when they're saying something learned is never forgotten, like riding a bicycle.

  19. Take A Hike To Ride A Bike!
    To wait looking for a strike
    Perhaps unwieldy
    But yet ever ready
    Profound force many may not like

  21. When I was a kid I wanted a bike so bad,
    But my parents could not afford one so I was sad.
    And then one day to my surprise
    What did I see before my eyes?
    A beautiful bicycle the color blue,
    And I road and road my bicycle, wouldn't you?
