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
Used this fantastic texture by Pink Sherbet.
