When did you get your first bike, and what was it?

by Ruth Kaser for Cycling Articles

We have a Schwin Fair Lady on display in the back of the shop. I refer to it as our bike art. I have lost count of the number of people who upon spotting the bike have exclaimed that was my first bike!

I confess that my memories of my very first bike are a bit vague although I believe it was a blue ladies bike and it was from Sears. Picture a single speed 60’s cruiser and you will get an idea of the bicycle. The bike I do remember I purchased from a bicycle shop, around 20 years ago-a Raleigh Technium road bike. It was and still is a great touring bike with an aluminum frame with down tube shifters.
