    Default My First Three-Wheeler Bike

    My first ever three-wheeler bike was lovely, and I cycled around when ever I got the chance to!..

    But!...Clever me decided to fasten my favourite doll to the seat, bend down at the back, and run like mad, then, my long hair got tangled into the chain and that was the first time I knew I had a good set of lungs, as I screamed my head off!..

    Infact, I think it was me that invented the spiked hairstyle, as by the time all my hair was cut off to free me I looked like a hedgehog!.

    I had a lovely little red and blue tricycle, I adored it, we had a great big downward slopping drive way and I would spend hours pushing my bike to the top then rolling down.
    I still remember the day I took it out across the fields where we lived and my two older brother decided I was too big for my little 'baby' bike and they threw it in the brook! Never to be seen again

    Aw, brothers!, huh!..

    I did eventually ride mine again, obviously never doing that again, although it took an age for my long hair to grow back, much to the giggles of my family and school friends!.

    My mates sister had a massive light blue trike with an enormous boot thing at the back. It was truly enormous to a 7 years old

    I like hedgehogs.

    Mine had a red seat, sky blue wheels and little red what looked like raindrops on the wheel hubs, and it had a special metallic smell that could instantly take me back to 1975 or whenever I had it. But I could only ride it in the park because we didn't have a garden, so it was more a rare treat. I'm sure my mum has a pic of me on it somewhere, yeah, I've got to pester her to get those pics out so I can foist myself on her for some nostalgia one Sunday.

    I saw the Tour de France on World of Sport, and because I thought I was pretty fast on my trike, I reckoned I could give those guys a run for their money and get the yellow jersey.

    I spose technically, if it had three wheels it was a trike rather than a bike anyway...

    Ouch at Marcella getting her hair caught in hers.

    I can't remember my trike very well, but raindrop shapes on the wheel hub rings a bell! I remember it was made of tin and might have had a cartoon character on it (on the seat?) but it was faded. I suspect my trike was second hand.
