Cris , United States, College memories
When I went of to college I had my own car but finding somewhere to park on campus was a big problem so my parents bought me a Peugeot 3-speed road bike that I still ride today.
When I started to gain weight after having children I was determinned to lose weight and got it back out of the shed, during good weather I ride it almost every day for errands around town. It's fitted with collapsible wire baskets that I used to carry my college books but now are used for bags of groceries.
My sons thought it was hopelessly uncool to start with, and adding those baskets was the kiss of death. But over the years their opinion has gone up, as we ride together to the local shops for groceries.
