LAST WORDS


Decades ago, a child chained a bicycle to a tree on Washington's Vashon Island. The tree, unperturbed, grew around the bike. | Photo by Ethan Welty/Tandem

"The bicycle is the most civilized conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart."
—Iris Murdoch, The Green and the Red
