It's all relative

"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving."
—Albert Einstein

"Well, unless you're really good at track stands."

A rider maintains balance during a track stand using micro-movements. Einstein of all people would likely recognize movement at all scales and counter with the fact that even doing a track stand, a bicyclist does indeed maintain balance by moving. That doesn't mean that the metaphor necessarily stands up; one would hope that in life you are able to move forward (at an appreciable scale) and do not get stuck standing still.
