Old newbie

Started riding when I was 5 or 6 around 1960. By 1965 my brother and I were tearing up the woods and hills in CT. 3-speed mountain bikers. Had a Robin Hood with the curved top bar.(Stolen) Then got my chrome Raleigh sport 3 speed. Its shown in an appraisel forum elsewhere.

Spent two years in college in Sussex England riding the footpaths of the South Downs.Pub to Pub.

Two years my son and I rode the Rail / Canal trail from Pittsburgh to DC.

Thats about it.

I forgot to mention my 1950 Humber that I brought back from England in 1973. 4 speed, rod brakes,full chain guard. stainless wheels, fork lock, dyno hub on rear with battery backup on verticle tube. Maybe a "policemans' special".
