Two Kinds of Wheels


       My husband, Mark, is a motorcycle enthusiast and a cyclist. One day he will take to the back roads on his motorcycle and the next day he'll head out on his bicycle. He enjoys riding both ways for different reasons, but when he's out on the road he experiences different reactions from fellow riders. When he's on his motorcycle, he waves to every other biker and cyclist he passes. The bikers wave back, but very few of the cyclists respond. When he sails down a hill on his bicycle, waving to everyone he passes, the other cyclists wave back, but very few of the bikers do. He has come to the conclusion that there is a club for each type of rider, and the club members don't mix. He wrote a song about riding both kinds of bikes and how we might build bridges by recognizing the attributes of both. 

       You can see the video we made to go with the song here. If the link doesn't work for you, please try going directly to You Tube and search for Mark VanLaeys. The name of the song is "Two Wheels." Mark VanLaeys: Two Wheels.
