My First Bike
|Red Schwinn Typhoon|
As a kid I had a red Schwinn Typhoon I would ride it on the sidewalk in front of my house at 12203 South Main Street at age 7. There is a hill on Main Street and my brother, friends and I would ride really fast down the hill north towards 121st Street and see who could hook slide the longest before running into the street at the end of the block. I remember that my dad had to put a stop to this foolishness as it was marking up the sidewalk and wearing out tires.

|My Serotta Rapid Tour|
I am amazed when I think about all of the sporting or exercising activities that I have participated during my life. Cycling is the only one that I can think of that I have done in every decade of of my existence on this planet. Cycling has brought me the benefits of mental and physical health, I have made lots of friends with other cyclist both in person and in cyber space and most of all I have had lots of fun riding a bicycle.
Not riding today because I have to go to work, but this is why i like bike commuting and that is another story.
