My Grandma’s Bike
This is my second post on Loving the Bike and this one is about my Grandma’s bike.
She got her bike for her 12th birthday. Before that, she tried to learn how to ride a bike on her older brother’s bike, but it was too big and she couldn’t learn how to ride.
My Grandma and I talked about her bike and she told me some memories. Here are two of them:
She rode her bike to school during the spring and fall. One day while riding to school she decided to take a short cut. While riding through a field, she saw a garden snake and accidentally rode over it! After that, she said she didn’t take that short cut anymore. I love snakes, so I was upset that my Grandma rode over one! Don’t worry Grandma, I still love you.
Anyways, she also told me a cougar story. She heard a story going around that there was a cougar in the area that she biked through to get to school. She told me that she remembers biking so fast through there, always picturing a cougar sitting in a tree starring at her. Luckily, nothing ever happened.
I really enjoyed having my Grandma share some of her biking memories with me, from a bike she had when she was my age. Thank you, Grandma.
