In this forum I thought it might be of interest to share memories of our parents and grandparents or even great grandparents as they relate to bicycling.
I sure wish I had made inquires when I had the chance, but I just didn't have any sense of historical heritage a few yrs ago.
Let me start:
My mother and grandmothers: I have no knowledge of their ever riding bikes
My Grandfather: faithfully commuted on his bicycle to the hospital where he worked as a Janitor.
My Dad: now in his mid 70's loves bikes and still rides. During WWII he road his bicycle and delivered, sadly enough, death telegrams for Western Union.
