Childhood #2

For Self Portrait Challenge - 'Childhood'

 

Blogged - with lots more childhood bicycle-related memories.

 

I spent much of my childhood on wheels.

 

"Mom -- I'm going for a bike ride" equaled sweet freedom. As long as I was back for dinner or before dark and didn't cause any trouble, I could pretty much go where I wanted.

 

The bikes from my childhood I can remember:

*Small black bike with banana seat and sissy bar - this would have been the bike that received the old "playing cards in the spokes" treatment. Classic!

*10-speed road bike

*Mountain bike

*Trick/BMX bike

 

Used this fantastic texture by Pink Sherbet.
