The Bike That Brings Back a Childhood

My first bike was a girl's Schwinn 3-speed in sparkling blue. My parents helped me find it at a yard sale and l purchased it with some money I had won in an art contest. I was 11 and it was one of the best Summer's l can remember. I rode that bike every day all day long and later in my adult life, in California I biked everywhere year round. Yesterday in Brooklyn, l found a Schwinn cruiser retro bike that reminded me so much of that bike l fell in love with it instantly. Every time l take my first ride on a new bike l am transported back to my 11 year old Summer
