I wear a picture of him around my neck, I drink his new beverage, I listen to many of his songs while riding, and I do what I can to carry his “Don’t worry about a thing” vibe within me….yeah, it should come as no surprise that I have huge respect and am a super big fan of the great Bob Marley.
But, Did Bob Marley Ride a Bike?
I know a lot about Bob, but the one thing I couldn’t seem to find the answer to was, “did he ride a bike?” I’ve done pretty much everything I can to find the answer. I’ve mentioned it to Richard at Cyclelicious (that dude seems to know absolutely everything about cycling), and he didn’t have the answer. I even wrote the Marley Family themselves, and got a reply saying they would ask the family and then post their reply on www.bobmarley.com. It’s been months now and I still haven’t seen it come up on the site.
So for now I’ve photoshopped this picture (thanks to my teammate, Myron) to show what Bob the Cyclist might have looked like. From what I know about Bob Marley, I’m convinced that he absolutely was a dude who liked to ride his bike. In fact, I can totally picture him rolling along the roads of Jamaica with a smile on his face.
So did he? Do you know if Bob Marley rode a bike? Send me anything you’ve got that leads to the answer.
Marley’s Mellow Mood
While I’m on the topic of Bob Marley, let me tell you about a great new drink that has been put out by his Family. It’s called Marley’s Mellow Mood and it’s not the easiest drink in the world to find….but so worth looking for. I first found out about it last December and have so far only located it in one location in Austin, but I sure hope it becomes more widespread.
In a world that seem to be pumping out more and more drinks to get you buzzed, Marley’s Mellow Mood is intended for the sole purpose of Calming your Soul, and Easing your Mind. And it works. When I drank my first can I immediately felt like I had just come back from an epic ride on the bike. I was totally relaxed and feeling good. I’m telling you man…this drink made me feel like the spirit of Bob Marley had just entered my body.
It tastes great, and the natural ingredients of Passion Flower, Hops, Chamomile, Valerian Root, Lemon Balm, and Melatonin put together one relaxing punch. Whether you’re a Marley fan, or just someone looking for a drink to put you in a Bob Marley state of mind, keep your eyes peeled for it.
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to kick back with a Mellow Mood and crank up “Three Little Birds”.
Thanks to Michael Krause, I was able to find out about the photo posted below of Bob and a bike. We still don’t know that Bob was in fact a cyclist…but this is a great start. Any more updates or information are greatly appreciated.
