Hang on to your hearts ladies, I’ve got my own centerfold in a new bicycle calendar.
A bicycle ride around the world begins with a single pedal stroke.

When I started the oldest and best collection of bicycle quotes on the internet, I never imagined that I would be one of the people quoted. My quote is featured for the month of February in the 2015 Bicycle Bliss Calendar. The publisher’s description of the calendar reads: “With inspiring cycling quotes by luminaries such as H. G. Wells, Scott Stoll, and Mahatma Gandhi.” I can’t even believe my name is in that sentence — and sandwiched between those two!
My quote even made the back cover call out! (But, I am joking about the centerfold, though the after picture might not have been too bad.)
This quote is just one of many ways that my trip went viral and paid me back in so many amazing ways; and, more importantly, inspired everyone I met.
Update 2018: The picture above is from Adventure Cycling Association’s #TGIF quote, which you may recognize. I did! Thanks Adventure Cycling! I’ve used your maps many times. This quote was quote popular with over 500 likes and 50 shares on the original post and many more after that. More about this quote here: Scott is Mr. February. And don’t miss our #1 ranked bicycle quotes page.
By the way, I’m not sure why this quote went viral. Here’s another favorite quote that I keep around just as a reminder to myself.
Bicycling across the country may seem hard now, but someday I imagine I’ll be in an office or on a couch wishing for my bicycle and a small stretch of road, wind or no wind, hill or no hill, even rain or no rain. ~ Scott
