Bike Quotes: Desmond Tutu on Cycling

Found another great bicycle quote for you:

"Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime. Teach a man to cycle and he will realize fishing is stupid and boring."
–Desmond Tutu

I met Desmond Tutu when he was in Vancouver last year for We Day. This quote seems pretty typical of his sense of humour. The man is constantly cracking jokes & laughing all the time. & that laugh--it's pretty infectious, partly because the cartoon-like squeaky sound of it is so unexpected.

Though the Archbishop says he hadn't been on a bike since he was in Sweden in 2007, he did gear up in spandex in support of the fundraising efforts of the Desmond Tutu Tuberculosis Centre team for the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour in March last year. Article & photo here.
