My First Bike

I got my first bicycle when I was 11 years old. This was 1978.  This was the decade BMX bikes started.

  • Color - green
  • Full suspension
  • 5 speed
  • With all the blings - directional blinkers, headlight, horn battery powered.  I don't have a picture of it but it is pretty close to this :

Imagine it green, add the gears and other blings and you get the picture.

This is pretty much my ride the whole of my high school.  Then I left Batanes for college in Manila.  That was the last time I biked for 17 years.  Not that I don't like it, it's just that I live in Manila full of vehicles and it's just too dangerous to ride with these gas guzzlers.
