This week's word is Bike. I've been searching my archives and any pictures of my youth when I did own and use a bike regularly are just full of me riding my horses. I have plenty of my brother-in-law on his bike as a child but not of B. So my pictures go back to when Katie was little. None of her brother unless it was in his pedal car!!
This first one was taken in our garden in Connemara, Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) when she was about 3 and still had balance wheels on her little bike.
Here she is again now 4 years old, this time on her father's motorbike in Salisbury, Rhodesia (Harare, Zimbabwe). Like many of our old photographs the colour is terrible and as I was fiddling around, making it lighter and clearer, I noticed her very little brother on the veranda behind her, in a bouncy chair.
We now move on many years, to when youngest grandson was learning to ride his bike with his Dad pushing him as all fathers have to do!!
Success - I love his little happy face - he looks so pleased with himself!!
And now he can go on proper bike rides with his big brother and Cleggy their dog. A most appropriate sign behind them!!
This picture was taken in 2010 while we were staying in Pickering and spent the day in Scarborough. I loved the flowers in the basket.
I photographed these motor bikes parked outside Winfields Sporting and Camping shop some years ago.
