    Ouch at Marcella getting her hair caught in hers.
    Ouch indeed! I once walked into a bike on my way back from the shop. I was about 9 and tried to time my walk across the road so I just walked behind a girl coming down the hill on a bike but she suddenly braked and I walked straight into her back wheel and got tangled up in the chain and wheel. She went over the handle bars and we both ended up in a messy heap. Now That was a BIG OUCH! and my own stupid fault. I never found out what happened to the girl cos I got carried home bleeding. (will this comment survive a hug)

    It was a big OUCH, and I can remember the pain to this day, and seeing all my hair being cut off!.

    These three Raleigh Trikes seem to fit most of our descriptions

    Mine was a Triang. Similar to the one on the bottom left of this link except mine had a yellow seat.

    I had a trike that looked a lot like the top photo above, though the seat was yellow with a picture of a marching band.

    It got passed on to me sister, eventually one of the rear tyres wore out & she road it on the rim.

    Mine was a hybrid! Mostly the one in the first picture but with the front wheel of the one in the third picture. Not only second hand but a cut and shut job!

    Veering off into the world of four wheels here, but I'd like to know if anybody had one of these and if it had a name. I have no memory of having this at all, but here I am getting to grips with mine in 1978.

    I has something very similar, I think they are usually simply referred to as 'ride on's' mine had a little seat you could lift up. I use to hid pieces of my plastic tea set in !

    Thanks for posting the pic btw huggie! Great memories. I can just see myself pedalling furiously round the park in the 70s, in training for my assault on the Champs Elysees, which strangely enough I never got round to.
