|ALL-TIME all-time that had a bike in it somewhere, it would be that ride in the country I took with Paulette Hooper when we were 16 years old... But if you mean equipment, I'd say my first mountain bike. It was a heavy slug Mongoose about 15 years ago, but I didn't know the difference and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. If not that, then a pink (!) Raleigh I had in sixth grade.
Trade 'em all for another ride with Paulette, though....

|Well, OK, they haven't been invented yet. But, that would be it.

|120 mile ride when I was 15||Dave Hickey|
Apr 7, 2001 4:07 AM
|When I was 15, a buddy and I rode 120 miles to see a couple of girls. We rode 75 miles the first day and asked a farmer if we could pitch our tent in his field. The next morning his wife brought out fresh eggs and orange juice. We rode the remaining 45 miles and spent a couple of hours with the girls and turned around and headed home.
That was over 25 years ago. It's a shame, but I don't know if I'd let my 15 year old son do it today.

|Early morning ride during summer heat||DINOSAUR|

|I enjoy going out early in the morning on the weekends during the summer heat spells when the temperature reaches triple digits in the afternoon. If I can force myself to get up early and start riding around 6:30-7:00AM. It is usually around 80-85 degrees, and best yet, no traffic. I just enjoy the ride, pure and simple.|| |
