The Dreams of Youth


I was seduced by the 10 speed wonderment that was the evolution of the bike when I was a teenager.


My brother had the typical boys bike that all boys had.  I wanted a vehicle, a sport machine, I wanted modern.

I got a 10 speed.

I wanted to ride it 5 miles to the bigger town.  I wanted to ride it 30 miles to school.   I was going to ride it anywhere I could where my passage was not stopped by cows or wheat or misplaced farmhands.  I wanted to be free.

I was going to be fitter than fit, finer than fine, I was going to have legs and buns of steel.

When I moved to the city I wanted to ride it everywhere.  I wanted to be in races.  I wanted to hit the open road and see where it could take me.  I was on fire.  I had taken a big bite of a dream and I was chewing hungrily.


And then I got on it and rode down the gravel road.

My bike made a great clothes rack in the corner of the garage.  It may still be there.

I have a car.
