My first bike was of course a little red trike. I think most of us started out on a red trike in the 70's. Was another color even manufactured? But, I finally got some freedom when my parents bought me a groovy Schwinn with a banana seat and streamers. What a way to ride!!! While I do have some pictures, unfortunately I do not have a scanner. But, this is what that first taste of freedom looked like.
|Great memories of that old bike!|
Ten years ago I scrimped and saved for a new bike. I wanted a lighter weight mountain bike. Then I found my Trek 4500. The bike served me well. Because I was young and single, I would bike a several days a week at Kensington Metro Beach. My bike even served me well on a few bike tours. Then I started grad school, then I got pregnant, then the bike acquired a baby seat. I have loved my bike.

Yes, like most of my posts, this one is longer than it needs to be. Basically, I am selling my bike. If you need a bike and live in Michigan, let me know. I love my bike and it needs a good home. Once my Trek has found a new home, I have only one decision left to make: Purple or Tangerine??????
|Purple Townie - my children like this one.|
|Tangerine Townie - this just looks like a happy bike.|
