It was back in 1993 when I was 8 years old that I first learnt to ride a bike. It took me quite a few weeks to get the hang of keeping my balance, all my friends could already ride a bike and I felt a bit left behind. I must admit it took me longer then everyone else, because I was scared of falling off, so it took me longer to learn. I learnt by riding up and down my street. My sister also learnt to ride her bike at the same time but she was only 6 at the time. I don’t remember what type of bike my first kids bike was, but I remembering it being pink and white.
Most of my friends had BMX bikes. This was the bike of the 90’s. And even more than 20 years later, I think my favourite bike is a BMX.
For this Christmas just gone, we bought Caitlin her first proper bike. She did have a small kids Peppa Pig bike but she out grow this. So we got her a brand new pink BMX. Yeah, a BMX, which is apparently the bike from the 90’s, but I much prefer this one, to one of the new fancy electric bikes. They actually scare me, and I would be terrified to ride one and there is no-way I would pay £1000 for a bike!
Here’s a few pics of Caitlin riding her bike.
Take a look at some more bikes through the decades and let me know which one is your favourite type of bike? Let me know in the comments.
