Learning To Ride

I must have been about 4 years old when I learned to ride a bike without training wheels.  If I remember correctly, we borrowed a bike from my cousin.  I learned by going slightly downhill in the front lawn.  It gave me the momentum I needed as well as a soft place to land if I crashed. 

My first new bike came around my 5th (maybe 6th) birthday I believe, a 1978-ish Kent BMX from Toys “R” Us.  I thought it was cool because it resembled a motorcycle.  I think it’s safe to say I’ve been obsessed with bicycles ever since.

Growing up as a kid in the late 70’s and early 80’s was fantastic if you were into bicycles… at least where I was from.  During this time, a bike was probably the most important possession a kid could have.  We spent countless hours on them.  When I got my first issue of BMX Action magazine it really became an illness.  I lived and breathed BMX.  It’s all I ever thought about.  A trip to the local bike shop was better than a trip to the candy store!

Here I am, 40 years old, and I still have bikes on my mind constantly.  For years now, I have been buying, selling, restoring, and collecting bikes.  My ultimate goal is to build and market my own frames.  With the support of my family, I plan to move forward with that dream.
