True Lies?

What is your first memory of being on a bike?

Trying to stop at the end of my grandparents driveway and denting my moms car bumper. Grandpa was proud of me and tried to calm my mom down about her car, she got over it in time.

Stepping on the right pedal to begin riding. Falling off in the grass to stop.

My dad holding on to the seat as he ran with me cycling around the block trying to stay upright. I still remember how out of breath he was and how much fun I had. True Freedom!

Getting my brand new racing bike as a teenager. Paid more for the bike than for my first car. My family & friends thought I was crazy paying $350 for a bike.
Spent the first day riding around with my head down looking at the shiny pedals, spokes, etc. Rode right into the back of a neighbors car. Fortunately neither the bike, car or me was damaged.

Hitting the curb and getting airborn over the bars into a juniper bush. I still ride like that today.
