My first impression was "where is this going?"...but your keen observation gave me something to think about also. Good thinking! Great message. Job well done.

Excellent analogy! I often get off the bike and inspect God as if He's the one with the issue, when really it's the rider (me) who has no clue what she's doing!
With a title like that, I just had to read. I liked your comparison of your faith in God and the biker's faith in his equipment. Nice job.
What a great analogy! Your description adds a great deal to your story. It's such a good reminder that we need to keep on our "bicycle of faith," confident it will carry us safely.

Your title drew me in, too. And the analogy kept me drawn in to the end. This is a great devotional reading and makes the point in a clear, interesting manner.

Great title, great analogy! You were very visual in the early paragraphs, and I enjoyed picturing the situation.

FYI: fluorescent, and its' is never correct: either its (possessive) or it's (meaning "it is" or "it has").

I loved the extra details that gave this a touch of realism--the green bike, the hairy legs, etc. Very good!

What an amazingly awesome object lesson here. You grabbed me from the beginning. Love it.

Very well done message. The story of the hariy-legged bike rider captured my attention and the point melted smoothly into the story. Good work.
This is just the type of devotional I enjoy reading. You drew me in with the title and the descriptive visuals, then made an unllikely, but very effective analogy to the Christian life. Excellent!

I like your title. I understand your analogy from personal experience, do you live in my neighborhoo? Good job.

Minor glitches, but a puppy in the pen. This analogy is so well stated as to be of note. Thanks, I enjoyed the read.
