La bicyclette bleue (the blue bicycle) is a French novel by Régine Desforges. My first bicycle was blue and the best I ever had. It used to be my sister's before it was mine and I couldn't even sit down on it.

If I've evoked a fond memory for you, Hélène, then I've done my job. I suppose that construction webbing looks familiar as well, although maybe not as memorable.

I can't ride a bicycle anymore, my back won't allow that. It's sad, because I was born on the saddle and used to ride everywhere: to school, work, restaurants, festivals, restaurants, pubs, restaurants(dis I say that already?).

My first own bike was green and it was a hippie bike with flowers on it.

Thanks for the memories.

Bicycling was more than transportation, it was also very good for you after eating at all of those restaurants! I bet that's how you kept your girlish figure.

My first bike was red but it had more scratches, dings and dents than paint along with the required amount of mud and grime for a young boy.

Yes, with a baseball card clipped to the back wheel so it sounded like a motorcycle. :)

Pink Flod's Bike song is one of my favorites. I cannot help but smile when I hear the lyrics "'re the kind of girl that could fit into my world...."

Great spin, Mick.
