Nothing hurts me more than seeing good bicycles in the trash.
When we were kids we had none.
I remember the first bike I ever "sat on".
Me and my friend found a bike with no pedals; just a frame and two wheels.
So we would get on at the top of the hill, and coast all the way down to the fish store.
To put on the brakes, we would put our shoe between the front wheel and the fork.
Boy, it was great fun !
Then one of us had to walk it all the way back."
