BIKES ON THE PIKE WAS CREATED BY ACCIDENT

MY INTEREST IN BICYCLES CAME  WHEN WHEN I WAS YOUNG JUST LIKE ANY KID AT THAT AGE. I ALWAYS HAD A KNACK FOR REPAIRING THINGS.ONE DAY IN MY LATER YEARS, I HAD SEVERAL YARD SALES AND ADDED BICYCLES TO THE MIX. I SOLD THOSE BIKES THE VERY SAME DAY. TWO DAYS LATER I HAD PEOPLE KNOCKING ON MY DOOR ASKING IF I HAD MORE USED BIKES.

I TOLD THEM “I CAN PROBABLY FIND WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR. SO I DELIVERED AS PROMISED. AFTER THAT I TALKED TO MY 81 Y/O DAD ABOUT IT BECAUSE HE LIVES WITH ME HE THOUGHT IS WAS A GOOD IDEA TO START SELLING USED BICYCLES. I FIGURED HE WOULD ENJOY KEEPING BUSY ANYWAY BECAUSE HE WAS A RETIRED MECHANIC.

SO WE STARTED LAST YEAR, AND IT HAS TAKEN OFF. THIS BECAME MORE OF A HOBBY BECAUSE PARTS ARE EXPENSIVE UNLESS YOU TAKE PARTS OFF OLD BICYCLES AND REUSE THE GOOD PARTS. IT HAS BEEN FUN SEEING MY DAD HELPING ME BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN APART FOR OVER 30 YEARS, AS WE LIVED IN DISTANT STATES.

WE BOTH ENJOY SEEING YOUNG CHILDREN RECEIVING THE BIKES AND BICYCLES BEING RECYCLED AND BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE. BOTH YOUNG AND OLD CAN ENJOY QUALITY FAMILY TIME RIDING A BIKE AND HAVING A PICNIC ALONG THE TOWPATH OR AT A PARK.
