Returning to what was good when we were kids

“This is the first bike I have had since I was a kid. I got it about a year ago when I was trying to get back into riding.”

Photographer’s notes: I hear this again and again – that people have had a few years, a decade or more, since they abandoned bikes in favour of cars, motors, public transit. Slowly they are returning, rediscovering the bike and the pleasure it gave them as kids.

If being childlike is riding a bike, may I remain childlike the rest of my life.
