“The bicycle is the most civilized conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart.” — Iris Murdoch
This week the Wednesday challenge from partner Susan and myself is CYCLING.
Should we blame our parents for teaching us how to ride a tricycle or is that exposure to the world of transportation part of the modern process of childhood education?
When I was a youngster my tricycle became an integral part of my “world” experience. Once I learned the mechanics of the machine it became a Herculean chore for my parents to pry me off my power machine.
Exploring my immediate neighborhood and venturing into new areas of adventure was just part and parcel of the deal. Bicycles became the natural ‘go-to’ vehicle for a lot of my friends to socialize and share experiences. In those days there was no fuel shortage as we provided our own internal energy to propel us.
Partner Susan and I invite you to tell us about your own cycling experiences.
As always, our challenge is flexible so please interpret in any way that suits you – Words, Pictures, Poetry or Rhyme.
