Do you remember your first bike? I do, it was a hand-me-down from my brother. A blue Schwinn with training wheels and a white plastic basket with colorful plastic flowers hanging on the front. I think the basket was my parent’s attempt to feminize it. It kind of worked, but I always knew it was still blue and wished it was purple—my favorite color at the time.
At ages four and 20 months, these kids love riding their bikes. They spend their free time cruisin’ the neighborhood on their bikes, as their parents walk and sometimes run behind making sure all passing cars can clearly see their tykes on their bikes. It was fun photographing small kids on their bikes. It is only a matter of time before I will not be able to keep up with them and their bikes.
